A man with a knife in his back slept for 10 hours before realizing he'd been stabbed during a fight on his porch. The bizarre story happened Sunday morning in Trenton, N.J. and shared the details on Dec. 9.

It seems the man with the knife in his back woke with pain in his back and had no idea what the issue was. He spoke to his brother, who apparently then saw the knife in the man's back. The stabbing happened in the wee hours of Sunday morning after a night of drinking.

The man with the knife in his back had been drinking and stepped onto his porch around 2 a.m. to smoke. Someone approached him and asked for a light, and the man refused. The two argued and got into a fistfight. Eventually the other man ran away, and the victim went in and went to bed.

It seems the man with the knife in his back simply had no idea he had been stabbed. Once he realized what happened and went to the hospital, he was reportedly “very uncooperative” with police. Police have confirmed he had a five-inch knife in his back.

The man who had the knife in his back is expected to fully recover, it seems. Police are asking that anyone with information about who else was involved contact them as the investigation continues.
