Early this month, a 32-year-old woman was brutally stabbed multiple times by an unidentified assailant inside a San Antonio theater.

The victim was reportedly catching a movie with San Antonio Spurs big man Jakob Poeltl.

“Multiple sources say that the victim of the brutal stabbing at the Palladium theater that happened at The Rim over the weekend was there with a San Antonio Spurs player,” Fox San Antonio reported.


“And we’ve learned from multiple sources at the San Antonio Police Department that the woman who was stabbed inside the Palladium – 32-year-old Sydney Bosworth – was there seeing a movie with San Antonio Spurs center Jakob Poeltl.”

Bosworth is currently recovering and has been discharged from the hospital. The Spurs organization, meanwhile, has not yet issued a statement.

Poeltl has played for San Antonio since 2018 when the team acquired him along with DeMar DeRozan from the Toronto Raptors in the Kawhi Leonard trade.

The 25-year-old Austrian had a career season last year. He averaged 8.6 points, 7.9 rebounds and 1.8 blocks per game in the 2020-21 season.
