Police Investigate Stabbing

Man Attacked Saturday Night In Serious Condition

Posted: May 5, 2014

HARRISONBURG — A central Valley man was in serious condition after being stabbed at about 11 p.m. Saturday night in Rockingham County, according to police.

Details were still sketchy Sunday, but authorities say the man, who was not identified, was stabbed off Coopers Mountain Road near Clover Hill, just south of U.S. 33.

The victim was transported by helicopter to the University of Virginia Medical Center in Charlottesville in serious condition, Rockingham County Sheriff Bryan Hutcheson said.

He said the man suffered more than one knife wound. Hutcheson would not provide additional information on Sunday because he said he did not want to compromise the ongoing investigation.

The sheriff’s office is following leads in the case in an effort to determine who is responsible for the stabbing, he said.

No charges had been filed as of Sunday night. Hutcheson would not speculate on what led to the stabbing.

Hutcheson said he likely would be releasing more information in the next day or two.
