Man tells police he was stabbed in robbery attempt
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A 22-year-old man was stabbed during a robbery attempt Saturday morning, the man told authorities.
The man told police that he was walking to his Washington Avenue apartment when a black male wearing a dark sweater attempted to rob him, said Sgt. Duke Jordan of the Charleston Police Department.
When the man refused to give the robber any money, the robber stabbed him in the back, the man told police. The stabbing allegedly happened in an alley behind a Foodland grocery store.
The man then walked to a friend's house and the friend took him to the CAMC Memorial hospital, Jordan said.
The man suffered a "serious" stab wound, Jordan said. No arrests had been made by Sunday night.
