An east side man who says he confronted a man trying to steal his neighbor’s car was stabbed in the chest early Wednesday.
Evansville Police responded to the 600 block of Ravenswood Avenue about 12:30 a.m.
Matthew Stevens told police he saw a black man with dreadlocks, wearing blue pajama pants and a blue long-sleeve shirt trying to steal the vehicle. Stevens told officers he approached the man and was subsequently stabbed in the chest. The injury was minor and Stevens refused medical treatment.
