The Richmond County Sheriff's Office is on the lookout for a stabbing suspect.

Investigators say, Wednesday night around 10:55 p.m., deputies answered a call to Ramblewood Apartments, located on Blake Drive, regarding a stabbing.

When deputies arrived, they made contact with a 23-year-old man who told them he had just returned to his apartment and upon entering his apartment, he heard a noise coming from the rear of his apartment.

The victim told deputies he attempted to investigate the noisem when a white man came running at him while holding a knife. The man was described as being 5'10" tall, weighing 170 pounds, wearing all black clothing, with a bar code tattoo on his neck.
