More information has come in regarding Sunday’s stabbing outside Candlestick Park before the 49ers-Giants game, and it appears the altercation began because the victim was wearing a Cowboys jersey. Because of course it did.

A 27-year-old man has non life-threatening injuries as a result of the attack, and two suspects, 22-year-old Kristopher Viana and 30-year-old Alexandro Arguelles, are in custody.

The victim, who has not been identified, was with five friends on the Southwest side of the stadium when he was approached by the suspects. An argument ensued, and now it looks like we know what started it.

Police Sgt. Michael Andraychak says a verbal altercation between an Elk Grove man and two San Francisco men escalated into a physical confrontation because the Elk Grove man was wearing a Dallas Cowboys jersey.

The two suspects were arrested near the scene, and booked on assault with a deadly weapon. And also, this just in: stabbing someone because of a jersey remains the dumbest reason possible for stabbing someone.
