Police are investigating the stabbing of a man from out of town who said he was wounded in an argument with two men at a strip club early Monday morning. But the man couldn’t remember the name of the club or its location.
The investigation began around 1:45 a.m. after someone called to report seeing a man near 2000 Monroe Place, calling for help, according to Atlanta police.
Officers arrive to find Mr. Travis Faulkner lying in the middle of the road outside a vehicle with obvious stab wounds to the abdomen, police spokesman Sgt. Greg Lyon said.
Mr. Faulkner was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital, but police did not release any information on his condition.
Mr. Charles Robinette, the driver of the vehicle, a Ford Mustang with South Carolina plates, told officers he and his friend were at a strip club when they got into a dispute with two men.
“The argument went out into the parking lot where one of the males stabbed Mr. Faulkner,” Sgt. Lyon said. “Mr. Robinette stated he got his .40 cal pistol out of his car and shot one of the males. He then dropped his pistol on the road as he was driving away.”
But neither Mr. Robinette nor Mr. Faulkner was able to remember the name of the club, the street name, nor provide a general direction of the club, Sgt. Lyon siad.
No strip clubs in the city were open, so officers contacted DeKalb County police to check for any calls related to the incident. They could not locate any strip club with shots fired or any serious incident that could be related, Sgt. Lyon said.
As for a description of the suspects, the victim was only able to say that it was two black men. Mr. Robinette was driven to Grady Hospital to be with the victim, Sgt. Lyon said.
