HYDE PARK – Police now say a man in his 60s was stabbed Friday afternoon and has life-threatening injuries after a man came out of the woods by his home and attacked him..
Police responded to the call just before 2 p.m. on Christy Lane. Police originally thought the man had been shot with a nail gun. The man was working outside when he was hit with a projectile. Police say the attacker came out of the woods.
Police are still searching for the suspect, who is described as a 6-foot, 230-pound Black male wearing gray pants and a blue, long-sleeved hoodie. By Friday evening, search dogs were brought to the scene.
“We are a little concerned,” said Ayri Ayala. “For all the time we have lived here it’s never been anything that crazy that’s happened over here. It’s usually a quiet neighborhood.”
“I was a little freaked out about it,” said Anay Ayala. “It’s like why would that happen here? It’s so quiet in this neighborhood.”
It is not clear if the two men know each other.
