Thursday, August 21, 2014

The Dalton Police Department is investigating a stabbing attack that happened on Underwood Circle in the early morning hours of Thursday. 

The attack may have been an attempt at robbing the victim. The victim survived the attack and is expected to recover.

The incident happened at approximately 12:20 a.m. The victim told police that he was talking on the phone while sitting outside of his apartment at 428 Underwood Circle when he saw two men wearing hooded sweatshirts with the hoods up walking past on the road. 

The victim told investigators that he told his friend on the phone that the two looked suspicious and that he believed they may have heard him say it. The victim told investigators that the two men turned around after a minute or two and rushed him saying, “Give it up! Give it up!” The men started to kick and beat the victim and also stabbed and cut him several times with some type of knife.

The victim suffered three stabbing lacerations to his torso and also two lacerations to his arms and one laceration on the right side of his head. The victim told investigators that the attackers also claimed that they had a gun. 

While the attack took place, the victim’s friend was still on the phone and called 911. Officers responding were unable to locate the suspects who fled on foot in the direction of Red Clay Avenue.

The victim was unable to provide many details about the description of the suspects. He did tell investigators that he believed based on their accents that the suspects were Hispanic and were teenagers standing between 5’7" and 5’8"with slim builds. Both were wearing black hooded sweatshirts.

Anyone with information on this incident or the identity of the suspects is asked to contact Detective Tommy Ensley at 706 278-9085, press 9, and then dial extension 157.
