A man was allegedly stabbed in his left shoulder outside the Ikkie Food Mart on Hamilton Road Monday at noon.

The man was being treated at WellStar West Georgia Medical Center on Tuesday when police contacted him. The man told police he was walking to Friendly Cab so he could get a ride home when three males came from behind him. He said one grabbed him by the neck, the second grabbed him around the waist and the third attempted to take his wallet from his pants pocket. The man said he told them he did not have any money, and one of the males then cut him on the shoulder before running away.

According to the police report, the man said he then went home and did not call 911 because he did not think the cut was bad. The man told police he realized the next day it was serious and left work early to get it checked out.
