McMullens motel stabbing victim knew his alleged assailant
Preliminary information indicates stab to the lower abdomen. The alleged assailant was known to the victim.
According to EPD Captain Steve Watson , "the victim was alert when he was transported to the hospital."
Drug use may have been a factor but the case is still being investigated, so Captain Watson cannot confirm that, at this time.
EPD Crime Analyst Brittany Powell said "the victim will survive. It's not a serious injury."
