Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Las Vegas police are investigating an incident after firefighters discovered a man who had been stabbed while responding to a call of a fire.

It happened just after 9:30 p.m. Tuesday at an apartment complex at Jones Boulevard near Washington Avenue.

Police said a woman stabbed her boyfriend, which prompted him to set a fire inside the apartment. The fire was reportedly put out by the time authorities arrived. Firefighters said the woman fled the scene.

That male victim was taken into custody and transported to University Medical Center with superficial stab wounds.

Arson investigators are also investigating.
