Several officers were searching behind a home in the 1500 block of West Worley, but they were still unable to locate a crime scene.

“Somebody said he had ran from that direction, so we were walking over there to see if that’s where it happened,” said Sgt. Jeff Rukstad. “But we haven’t found any witnesses or anybody who heard where it happened or where it came from.”

Sgt. Rukstad said detectives will be speaking to the victim at the hospital to try to get more information.
