The stabbing happened near Emma Prusch Farm Park, where the Eastside Cinco de Mayo ended today.

Police aren't releasing many details at this time, however we do know the incident happened at around 5:30 p.m. -- about half an hour after Cinco de Mayo celebrations officially ended in the area.

Now, this scene playing out after what had been a peaceful day celebrating Cinco de Mayo. Some were describing it as disappointing, but not surprising.

"I'm not surprised. Have you seen the area? I lived here since 2012, I reckon, and working here. And it's been getting worse and worse. It's unfortunate you know there's lots always happening. It's been a tough three or four years with what's happening with the city, and I can understand this is a damper, but keep moving forward," said resident Joseph Lara.
