(TERRE HAUTE) - Terre Haute police continue looking for a stabbing suspect.

Rick Rhodes of WTHI reports that just after 6:00 Saturday evening police were called to 8703 Wabash Avenue.

Frederich Erskine III, 39, told police he was checking his brother-in-law's trailer for a possible burglar.

That's when Erskine says a young man came from a back room and the two had a confrontation.

Erskine says the man pulled out a knife and stabbed him several times in his left forearm before knocking him down and running away.

Erskine's injuries are not life-threatening.

The suspect is described as a white man, between 17 and 20 years old, with short sandy blonde hair.

He was last seen without a shirt, but was wearing blue jean shorts and white and blue tennis shoes.

If you have any information about this incident, call Crime Stoppers at 812-238-STOP.
