Associated Press Release

ATLANTA (AP) -- A football fan was stabbed in the neck following San Francisco 49ers-Atlanta Falcons NFL playoff game.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the incident occurred in a parking lot outside the Georgia Dome. The newspaper reported the Falcons' fans began arguing with a small group of 49ers fans. The argument escalated and one fan punched another fan and then someone pulled a knife and slashed a 35-year-old man. He was not identified. Atlanta television station WSB reported he was in stable condition at an Atlanta hospital.

A suspect has not been located.

Georgia World Congress Center police are handling the investigation. Police say they hope to speak to a woman spotted in the area, though it's unclear whether they view her as a suspect or witness.
