Bryan man sentenced to 40 years in prison for 2022 bar stabbing

Frank Hernandez III, a 45-year-old College Station man, was sentenced to 40 years in prison Tuesday for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon from a bar stabbing in February 2022, according to the Brazos County District Attorney’s Office.

On Feb. 19, 2022, College Station police responded to a local bar after they received calls about a stabbing incident, according to the DA’s office. Police were told two victims were taken to Baylor Scott & White Hospital where medical staff tended to stab wounds to their chest area and worked to save their lives.

Officers interviewed multiple people at the scene of the incident and were told one of the victims was in a verbal altercation with Hernandez before the stabbing occurred and added things escalated into a physical altercation between the victims and Hernandez’s brother, according to the DA’s office. Cell phone videos from bystanders showed Hernandez’s brother started the physical altercation and stabbed both victims, and that Hernandez stabbed one of the victims multiple times while he laid on the ground. Onlookers told police Hernandez chased the victims through the parking lot and challenged others before he fled prior to police arrival.
