WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Police are investigating after they say a man was stabbed several times by a group of men in the Ramada Inn parking lot over the weekend.
They say just before 2:30 a.m. Saturday, officers were called to the hotel at 5001 Market Street in reference to the stabbing. That’s where police say they found a man lying face-down in the roadway outside of the hotel.
Officers say when they first got to the scene, they saw witnesses trying to help the man by applying pressure to his back and wounds. Police say the man had been stabbed five times when he was walking in the parking lot.
They say after the man was stabbed, the group of suspects jumped into a 2002 Nissan Altima and took off. Police say the group drove off on Market Street going west. The victim was taken to the hospital and underwent treatment there.
There’s no word yet on whether the suspects got away with anything.
