A man is in the hospital after being stabbed. But, Syracuse Police say that he was able to fight off his attacker with a baseball bat.
Investigators say it happened outside Jimmy's Super Savers Market on South State Street, on the city's South Side. Devon Williams, 37, was stabbed in the left shoulder and back of the head Sunday morning about 8:45 a.m. He's been taken to Upstate University Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Police say the attacker ran away after Williams hit him with the bat. It's unclear the attacker was also hurt.
Police are looking for a black man who's 35-40 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall, and has a "stocky build." He was wearing a camouflage shirt and jeans at the time of the stabbing.
Anyone with information is asked to call Syracuse police at (315) 442-5222.
