Two sisters were stabbed by an intruder late Sunday night when one of them answered her apartment door.
The sisters, 27- and 21-years-old, were waiting for a guest around 10 p.m. at their Wildwood Avenue apartment when someone knocked on the door, said Columbus Police Lt. Lynn Joiner. Thinking it was their friend, the older sister opened the door.
"And there was a subject at the door that she did not know," Joiner said. "Evidently, he pulled some kind of weapon or sharp object and started stabbing her."
When the younger sister yelled, the man entered the apartment and began stabbing her.
"Luckily, their injuries were not serious," the lieutenant said.
The suspect, described as a black man in his 20s, standing about 5-foot-6 with a medium build, could have a moustache and beard. He was wearing a green jacket and a black doo-rag.
The assailant ran after the stabbing.
Anyone with information about the incident should contact police at 706-653-3400.
