(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.
