Police investigate robbery, stabbing in Mickelson Park
According to Lt. Joel Vettel:
An adult male told police he was dropping off recyclables when he was confronted by a black man in a gray hooded sweatshirt and a dark baseball cap with a darker colored visor on the cap.
The assailant, who was described as being of average build and as speaking with a Southern accent, took a small amount of cash from the man and then slashed him with some type of edged weapon, Vettel said.
The man suffered a small cut to his forearm and drove himself to the hospital.
A canine officer was brought in to track the suspect, but the attempt was unsuccessful.
The incident remains under investigation, Vettel said.
