NEW HANOVER COUNTY — The New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man involved in a stabbing this morning at a Circle K.

NHCSO described the suspect as a middle-aged black male driving a newer model brown Hyundai.

Just after 9 a.m. this morning, deputies responded to 2455 N. 23rd St., the Circle K convenience store located at the entrance of the Wilmington International Airport for a stabbing. Two men got into an argument at the gas station, which led to the suspect swinging at the victim while holding a large knife, striking the victim in the chest and causing severe injury. The victim was transported to Novant Health New Hanover Regional Medical Center in stable condition. 

If anyone has any information on the identity of the suspect please, NHCSO is asking them to contact them at 910-798-4162 or https://www.nhcgov.com/1066/Submit-a-Crime-Tip.
