Police investigate Guyandotte stabbing

Jul. 20, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- A Guyandotte man received non-life threatening injuries in an early-morning stabbing that police say happened amid a domestic disturbance.

Cabell County 911 received word of the incident at 6:28 a.m. The incident occurred in the 100 block of Main Street.

Huntington Police Lt. John Williams issued a release stating the 22-year-old man received a stab wound to the abdomen. It happened as the man's ex-girlfriend arrived at his home to tend to an issue involving their child.

Investigators say the 22-year-old left his residence without provocation and assaulted her new boyfriend, who waited outside in their vehicle. In the process, he was stabbed with a box cutter, the release states.

Williams described the wound as serious but said the man should survive.

No arrest was made, and the case will be reviewed for possible presentment to a grand jury.
