TCU student stabbed on West Berry


    A TCU student was stabbed early Saturday morning on the 2900 block of West Berry, according to a crime alert sent by Sgt. Kelly Ham.

    The victim of the aggravated assault was Bret Polk, 20, according to the Fort Worth Police Department incident report. 

    According to the incident report, police officers responded to a cutting call on Sandage Avenue at approximately 2:48 a.m., where the caller said that Polk had been stabbed outside a nearby taco stand.

    Medstar and the fire deparment were already at the scene and had bandaged up Polk’s abdomen, according to the report.

    The report said that upon investigating, it appears that the victim and his friend had been asked to leave Fuzzy’s Taco Shop and were upset. Polk and his friend then got into an altercation with an unknown suspect outside of the Aardvark. The suspect used a knife or similar sharp object to stab Polk in the abdomen. 

    According to the crime alert, the two students were walking by the Aardvark when the suspect began using racial slurs that were directed at one of the students. A fight then arose between the suspect and the two students, which resulted in Polk being stabbed.
