Officers were called to the 5300 block of Gawain Avenue after 11:30 p.m. Wednesday and found a 47-year-old woman who had been stabbed multiple times.

Police said her 38-year-old neighbor told her she was watering her yard when they began arguing about a dog that was not kept on a leash and allowed to go to the bathroom in one of their yards.

The younger woman told police she feared for her life, so she turned the water hose on her neighbor.

The 38-year-old woman then ran into her home and grabbed a kitchen knife, police said.

She told police that when she went back outside, her neighbor punched her and knocked her to the ground.

Police said the younger woman then stabbed her neighbor with the kitchen knife.

The 47-year-old was rushed to San Antonio Military Medical Center for treatment. The younger woman was taken into custody and questioned.

Officers at the scene were not sure what charges, if any, she would face.
