PYEONGTAEK, South Korea A U.S. soldier was in custody Friday after allegedly stabbing a female bartender near Osan Air Base in a fit of jealousy, authorities said.

The woman, 27, was reported in critical condition and on life support Friday with multiple knife wounds. Police said shes from the Philippines and worked in the Shinjang Mall entertainment district just outside the base.

"I can say she is going through a very critical moment right now," said surgeon Ahn Sang-ik, who operated on the woman at Osan Hankook Hospital. "It is too early to tell whether she will be OK."

Two others men who heard the womans screams and rushed to her aid also were injured when trying to subdue the soldier.

Both remained hospitalized after surgery, but their injuries were not life-threatening, authorities said.
