An 28-year-old Opelika man told police that an acquaintance of his cut him with a knife during a Sunday altercation in the 3700 block of Randall Drive, according to a release.
The victim was transported to the East Alabama Medical Center and treated for a non-life threatening injury, Opelika Police Capt. Shane Healey said. Because the investigation is ongoing, police will not publicly announce which part of the victim's body was harmed, the captain said.
Police learned that the second-degree assault happened near the victim's Opelika residence at 2:45 a.m., but they haven't determined what led to the altercation, Healey said.
Healey said the suspected offender has not been charged, and Opelika police will not release his name at this time. The captain said it was up to the victim to decide whether or not he will prosecute the offender.
