Authorities responded to the call at a shopping center Wednesday around 7:50 p.m. in the 6100 block of Telephone Road. Officer Williams walked into the fast food restaurant and saw a man exposing himself to other customers.
According to officials, Williams told him to stop and as he was walking the man out of Subway, a fight started in the parking lot. During that fight, police say the man stabbed Williams over and over, then took off.
The first officers on scene tightened a tourniquet around Williams' leg to slow the bleeding. He lost a lot of blood and was taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital, where he is recovering.
Though the suspect got away, police say they have good surveillance video, so they know who they are looking for. They say the man got away in a silver four-door hatchback. No other description has been made available.
