County Detectives Believe Bizarre Burglary, Stabbing Related

Last updated on Monday, August 4, 2008

(BEDFORD) - Lawrence County Sheriff’s detectives are currently investigating an absolutely bizarre case that happened along Old 158 in the county.

Lawrence County Sheriff Sam Craig tells WBIW News deputies were called about a burglary at the 400 block of Old 158, the victim reporting cash, computer equipment and other items had been stolen from his house, late last night.

Then, early this morning, Craig says the same victim called back, saying the alleged robber pulled into the man's driveway, and the man jumped on his vehicle.

The vehicle took off with the victim still on it, and eventually, the driver allegedly stabbed the victim in the hand. The victim refused medical assistance though he was advised to seek it anyway.

The same person is reportedly suspected in both incidents and Lawrence County detectives are still investigating. No charges have been filed yet.
