A Colquitt County man is behind bars after investigators say a fight over a woman led to a stabbing.

Deputies arrested 46-year-old Luis Zapate Saturday night in the 300 block of Circle Road, after he got into a fight with another man, because they were dating the same woman.

 Investigators say when 28-year-old Enrique Ortiz tried to break up the fight, Zapate stabbed him three times.

"He stabbed him once in the shoulder, once in the left bicep, and sliced his forearm on the left side," said Chris Robinson of the Colquitt Co. Sheriff's Office.

Ortiz was released from the hospital with stitches.

Zapate is now charged with aggravated assault and possession of a knife during the commission of a crime.
