A booking photo of Anderson is attached to this news release.  

HPD Major Assaults & Family Violence Division Officer A. Merino reported:

Mr. McCray and Anderson had a verbal confrontation that began at 600 East Tidwell Road when McCray left the location toward the parking lot of a shopping center at the above address.  Anderson soon followed McCray and they argued a second time.  During this argument Anderson pulled out a knife and stabbed McCray.

McCray suffered injuries to his right rib cage and is expected to survive.  

Further investigation and a witness at the scene identified Anderson as a suspect and responding HPD officers arrested him at the scene.
