GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KHGI/CNN) - Nebraska police were called to the scene of a stabbing incident that broke out near a house of worship.

According to the authorities, Aslin Nabarro and his estranged girlfriend got into a fight. He then stabbed her around 20-times, before he started to stab himself.

Both of them received surgery at Saint Francis Medical Center.

Nabarro has been taken into custody as the investigation into the matter continues.

This is the second stabbing incident Grand Island has seen over the past two months. Earlier this week the city council passed a plan to add additional police officers in the area.
