MIAMI -- Authorities say a 24-year-old man is recovering after he was stabbed while trying to buy a ticket to the Miami Dolphins-New York Jets game.

Miami Gardens police spokesman Bill Bamford said Tuesday that John Langsett was stabbed Monday night outside Land Shark Stadium after an argument started while he was negotiating a ticket sale.

Police say Hamin Basim Ansar pulled out a pocket knife and stabbed Langsett in the chest and back of the head. The 51-year-old Ansar was arrested and charged with attempted second-degree murder.

Langsett was released from the hospital Tuesday morning.

It was not immediately clear whether Ansar had an attorney. He was being held at a jail and his bond has not been set.

Miami beat New York 31-27.
