Three men were allegedly stabbed at Aspen Heights in the early hours of Monday, March 10.

KENS5 reported that the altercation began at about 1:40 in the morning when a group of students tried to crash a party before they returned with pans and box cutters.

Two of the victims were taken to Methodist Hospital by another party goer, while the third was initially treated at the scene, according to the San Antonio Express-News; he was lying face down and bleeding on a couch when police officers arrived at the scene. The victim was then taken to University Hospital. The Express-News also reported that the altercation began at a separate apartment where a melee erupted in the living room.

According to KAAB, police have responded to calls from Aspen Heights more than one hundred times last year alone.

In March 2012, 21-year-old Randall Perkins was allegedly shot and killed at the former Aspen Heights property, now known as The Estates at San Antonio. Leasing Manager Sam Hagerty told the Express-News that the move to the new property on Berthoud Lane was not a reaction to the fatal shooting, but rather a planned expansion of the complex.

Mary Seitz, a member of a neighborhood organization in the UTSA area told KAAB.that "Aspen Heights needs to step back in and step up security."

"Our number one priority is our residents," said Hagerty, according to the Express-News.

No arrests have been made.
