Police on Sunday were investigating a New Year’s Eve stabbing that sent a man to the hospital with potentially fatal injuries, though few details were available Sunday.

Gainesville Police Lt. Jorge Campos said the man was stabbed Saturday evening in what might have been a domestic dispute and likely would have died had he not gotten to a hospital quickly.

“They rushed him to surgery and he survived,” Campos said.

It wasn’t immediately clear where in the city the man was stabbed, though Campos said investigators might have found the location Sunday night.
