Picking up a woman a man thought was a hooker turned out to be painful for one west side man overnight.

  1200 WOAI news reports the 43 year old man picked up an alleged prostitute on the city’s west side just before midnight Friday night.

  The pair went to the alleged hooker’s home on West Commerce Street, and they were in the home when the woman’s ex boyfriend walked in.

  After asking what the pair was doing, the ex pulled a knife and stabbed the John in the upper left chest right above the heart.

  Rather than having a fling with the woman, the victim is in a hospital bed in critical condition.  No word on charges.
