He was stabbed in the upper right portion of his chest. The victim also told police he was alone and the suspects were not able to get anything from him.

Officers stayed on scene until an ambulance arrived. They attempted to find a crime scene but were unable to do so, the report says.

Witnesses who found the man, according to the report, told officers they didn’t witness the attack but found the man afterward and called authorities.

The man was taken by CareFlight to Miami Valley Hospital. He was still listed as a patient Monday evening, but his condition could not be released, according to a hospital representative.
