CONYERS -- A Pinedale Circle man told police that he was stabbed on two different occasions over the weekend by a man who rode up to his duplex on a bicycle.
An officer with the Conyers Police Department interviewed the 27-year-old victim Saturday at Rockdale Medical Center after the first incident was reported by the hospital staff.
The victim told police that he was standing at his front door with the door slightly open, smoking a cigarette, at about 5:30 p.m. Saturday when a man he had seen around the neighborhood rode up on a bicycle. The victim said the suspect asked if he had a cigarette. When the victim said no, the suspect allegedly pushed open the front door, went into the kitchen, got a knife off the counter, pushed the victim to the floor, and started trying to stab him.
The victim said he held up his hands to defend himself and sustained several cuts to his left hand before the suspect ran out of the back door of the duplex.
The victim's wife was present when the alleged attack took place and told police a similar story, describing the suspect as "a stereotypical crack head." She said her husband's had was bleeding profusely, so she drove him to Rockdale Medical Center.
On Sunday, a few hours later, police responded to the victim's residence at about 4:15 a.m. after the victim reportedly called for an ambulance but said he didn't want the Conyers Police to come.
During the investigation, the victim told police that he had been sitting on his back porch when the same suspect from the night before rode up on a bicycle and began arguing with him.
The two reportedly began to fight and the suspect allegedly stabbed the victim several times in the chest with a knife before leaving again on his bike.
The victim sustained several shallow cuts on his chest. He was treated at the scene by National EMS.
The victim's wife said she was in the back bedroom of their duplex and didn't see or hear the fight.
The police officer reported there was blood on the kitchen floor and on the porch floor, which appeared to be from the night before.
The suspect was described as a black male, 5 feet, 10 inches to 6 feet tall, with a slim build and no facial hair.
