The Waynesboro Police Department is investigating an overnight stabbing that sent an 18 year old Waynesboro man to the University of Virginia Medical Center with serious injuries. At 12:40 AM, officers responded to the city's east side for a report of a stabbing. At a residence in the 1300 block of Second St, the officers located the victim suffering from two stab wounds. The officers rendered first aid to the victim until the Waynesboro First Aid Crew arrived.
The victim told the officers that he had been stabbed by two teenage girls at Balli Food Mart, 608 N Delphine Ave, and then fled on his bicycle. Other individuals at the residence told officers that they found the injured man nearby and brought him to their home and then called for assistance. The WFAC transported him to Augusta Health, where he was airlifted to the UVA Medical Center. He is currently in stable condition with stab wounds to his back and upper arm.
The victim identified two sixteen year old Waynesboro girls as his attackers.
