A man was stabbed in Old Town during an attempted robbery on Monday, according to the Alexandria Police Department.
The incident occurred after 11:30 a.m. at the intersection of Wolfe and South Alfred streets, according to a Tweet from APD. The victim was transported to the hospital and sustained non-life threatening injuries.
“We do not have a description of the suspect who fled before officers arrived,” Alexandria Police Senior Public Information Officer Amanda Paga said in a statement. “It turns out nothing was taken, so there was no robbery.”
The investigation is still active, Paga said.
