During Groovin’ on the Grounds on Saturday, a fight between two 19-year-old, non-LSU students resulted in a stabbing, according to LSU Police Department Spokesman Capt. Cory Lalonde.

Tyler Bowman, of 3000 July St. Apt. 1101, was arrested for aggravated battery after stabbing another patron.

Around 9:30 p.m., LSUPD broke up a fight between Bowman and the eventual stab victim and asked them to leave. Neither wanted to press initial charges, Lalonde said.

Bowman then found the victim while he was leaving and stabbed him in the back once near his right shoulder with a small folding knife, Lalonde said.

Bowman fled, but LSUPD found him on State Street about 15 minutes later, according to Lalonde.

Lalonde said the victim was alert and responsive as he was brought to the hospital, and he sustained moderate injuries.

Bowman was booked in East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
