Man blocks traffic to stab passenger

ENSLEY, AL (WBRC) – Police are looking for a suspect who stopped his vehicle in the middle of the road to stab his passenger on Avenue F in Ensley.

An AT&T worker says he was driving his work van along Avenue F around 9:30 a.m. on Thursday when the vehicle in front of him suddenly stopped. The worker says a man got out of the driver's side of the vehicle, went to the passenger's side and removed a female passenger, then started repeatedly cutting and slashing at the woman with a knife.

The worker says the man was so carried away with stabbing the woman that he motioned to the worker to drive around his stopped vehicle while continuing the assault. The worker took down the number of the car as the man got in his vehicle and sped off.

Authorities were alerted and managed to transport the woman to UAB Hospital. The worker says she seemed alert while she was being treated.

Police were still searching for the suspect.
