(WMC-TV) - A 16-year-old girl ran to her neighbor's house for help. Investigators believe her 20-year-old boyfriend stabbed her in the neck – but police say they are still trying to figure this one out.

The block shut down over the incident Friday morning.

Ulala Fortner was babysitting her grandson when she saw the man roaming in the street without shoes and a shirt. Also, he was bleeding from his side and carrying a sword.

"I didn't say nothing to him because I didn't want him over there with me and my grandson. You know how these people are," said Fortner.

Neighbors wonder if it is all connected to recent events.

"I went to a neighborhood watch meeting last night," said Cordova resident Melanie Marcom. "We were just told to keep an eye out for him because he had already threatened one of our residents."

Another resident said he observed dozens of kids in the streets with knives earlier in the week.

"They had traffic backed up on the street for a little while," said resident Jim Fumich.

Police say they are investigating, and everyone else hopes this first time is also the last.

Police say the teen was taken to The Regional Medical Center in critical condition, and the boyfriend is in custody.

Investigators have not released their names.
