Wellsville man reportedly stabbed

WELLSVILLE – An 18th Street Heights man was stabbed on the right side Tuesday night by a man who jumped out of a car.

Lifeteam EMS and deputies were called to the home of Michael Dylan Thrasher, 20, who was transported to East Liverpool City Hospital for treatment of a stab wound.

Thrasher told sheriff’s deputies he was walking home from a friend’s house and was in the area of a playground on 18th Street Heights when a man jumped out of a silver Cavalier. Thrasher said the man told him he had been looking for him a long time and then stabbed him on his right side across his ribs.

The sheriff’s report did not indicate if Thrasher knew his attacker or not.
