Teen stabbed during attempted armed robbery outside Cumming Stars and Strikes
FCSO

A north Forsyth teenager was recently stabbed in the leg after reportedly refusing to give up his wallet during an attempted robbery in the parking lot of Stars and Strikes in Cumming.

On Tuesday, June 6 around 1:30 a.m., Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to Northside Hospital-Forsyth due to reports of a stabbing.

The 19-year-old man told deputies he was standing by his car from “about 12 to 1 [a.m.] when he was approached from the rear by a white male approximately 6’4” with a shaved head, beard, red t-shirt and jeans,” according to an incident report. “[The victim] said that the unknown assailant punched him once in the back of the head, knocking him to the ground. [He] said he was able to get up but was struck again in the front of the head by the fist of the attacker and again fell to the ground.”

The victim told deputies the attacker then pulled out a knife and demanded his wallet.

“[He] refused to relinquish his wallet and was struck with the knife in the right leg, causing about a three-inch laceration,” the report said. “[He] said that the subject then fled on foot running northeast through the parking lot without [the victim’s] wallet.

“[The victim] stated that he did not know the attacker nor has he seen him in the past.”

It was not immediately known whether the teen drove himself to the hospital or what he was doing outside Stars and Strikes. The bowling alley closes at midnight on weekdays.

Deputy Pat Sternik, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office, said as of June 13, the incident was still being investigated.

“At this time, we do not have any further suspects,” he said, “but we have not found [there is] any threat to the public.”
