He and the assailant, a man who was believed to be in his 60s, were talking out front and the assailant “got upset with something” the victim said. The victim told police he “made a move like he was going to go after the other man and that person then pulled out a pocket knife and stabbed him, according to the report.
The victim had two stab wounds to his upper right side on his back and one on his left side. He was rushed by paramedics to OSF Healthcare Saint Francis Medical Center where he underwent treatment.
