Police investigate stabbing outside bowling alley



FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A man was reportedly stabbed June 6 outside of Stars and Strikes bowling alley on Merchants Square.

The 19-year-old man said he was standing by his car in the parking lot from midnight to 1 a.m. when he was approached from behind by an unknown man. The attacker then apparently punched the man in the back of the head, knocking him to the ground. The victim said he was able to stand, but was struck again in the front of the head so he fell back to the ground.

At that point, the attacker took out a knife and demanded the man’s wallet. The man refused, so the attacker stabbed him in the right leg causing a three-inch laceration. The stabber then fled on foot through the parking lot without the wallet.

The man said he didn’t know the attacker and hadn’t seen him in the past.
