The Social Circle Police Department and Walton County Sheriff’s Office are working a stabbing that is believed to have happened somewhere in the Social Circle area of Walton County on Tuesday, June 6, 2017.
Social Circle Police Chief Tyrone Oliver said SCPD were called to an address inside the city limits and arrived to find a man on the sofa with a stab wound in the chest area.
“He was taken to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries,” Oliver said. “It was determined that the stabbing took place at a local gas station inside Walton County – the BP gas station. WCSO was called as it was not inside the city.”
However, Oliver said the investigation indicates that the stabbing actually did not appear to have happened at the gas station. He said video surveillance does not support it taking place there or even that the victim was there. The victim is not being cooperative, so at this point it is not clear exactly where the stabbing took place or who was responsible for it. Oliver said the victim initially said he did not know who it was that stabbed him, but is not giving them any more information at this time. Both agencies continue to investigate the incident. Oliver said the victim was still in the hospital on Wednesday mornin.
