Crime Watch: Man Stabbed, Tow Trucks Stolen
– July 8, 2011 12:00 am
The victim was walking in the area of Jefferson Davis Highway (U.S. 1) and Potomac Hills Drive about 4:30 a.m. Thursday when a man approached him, demanded money, and stabbed the victim when he said he had no cash, said Stafford sheriff’s spokesman Bill Kennedy.
A tow truck driver saw the victim who was walking along U.S. 1 near Sunnyside Nursery and asked the man if he needed help, but he declined, said Kennedy. The driver then saw a car come a pick up the victim, and police later found the victim with a friend at a pharmacy on Garrisonville Road (Va. 610). The couple was purchasing bandages when deputies found them.
The victim was taken to a local hospital and underwent surgery for his wounds, added Kennedy.
The only description investigators were able to obtain was that the attacker was wearing a hooded sweatshirt. The investigation is ongoing.
3 tow trucks stolen
Three tow trucks were stolen from a business on Industry Court, off Featherstone Road in Woodbridge on Tuesday.
Employees of the victimized business told police someone cut a portion of a rear fence and entered the property between 6 p.m. July 1 and 8 a.m. Tuesday, and then stole the trucks.
One of the trucks was later recovered in North Carolina but the other two remain missing, said Prince William police spokesman Jonathan Perok.
