WFPD: Investigation underway following attempted robbery, stabbing

Local News

Wichita Falls police officers are investigating an attempted robbery turned stabbing at a Wichita Falls apartment complex Friday afternoon.

It happened at the Avalon Meadows Apartments on Old Iowa Park Road about noon.

Police officers said a man who lives at the complex called authorities saying two white males and a black male tried to rob him. 

“We came here, found the scene, found the victim who had been robbed and he was fine, but he went to the hospital to get checked out he had some superficial wounds on face it looked like,” WFPD Sgt. Charlie Eipper said.

Police officers believe the other suspects drove the stabbing victim to United Regional for treatment and dropped him off, and at last check, detectives were waiting to interview him.
