TROY - Police in Troy are investigating a stabbing that took place Saturday evening.
Around 8:50 p.m. police say they got a report of a man who stole a bag of chips from the Titanic Market on 5th Avenue. According to officials, the suspect walked into the store, put the chips in his pocket and presented a knife to the clerk before leaving. The suspect then reportedly slashed the clerk's back tires before fleeing west on 102nd Street.
It was then, police say, the man encountered another victim outside of the Irish Rover Pub, presented the knife again and demanded cash. The victim refused to turn over any cash or belongings and that's when police say the suspect stabbed him in the back several times before taking off in a silver sedan.
The victim was treated on scene by Troy medics and taken to Albany Medical Center where he is expected to survive.
Police are looking for a heavy-set white man with brown hair, approximately 30 years old. He was last seen in a silver Mazda sedan. The year and model are unknown. Anyone with information is encouraged to call Troy police.
