    Police in Walpole, Massachusetts are searching for a stabbing suspect.

    A victim was stabbed in the back of the knee and then handcuffed to his steering wheel by a male suspect wearing a hoodie at Town Fair Tire in East Walpole on Route 1 earlier this afternoon.

    The victim, who was transported to an area hospital, is an assistant manager at the business and was closing down for the day when he was attacked. While his injuries are serious, he is expected to survive.

    The suspect fled on foot from the scene. His phone was pinged to Coney Street in town. He is believed to have gotten away from the store with money and some other items.

    A reverse 911 call was sent out to warn residents of the area. Officers had the assistance of helicopters and K-9s during their search of the area, with one K-9 picking up a strong scent before losing it, leading officers to believe that the suspect escaped the area in a car.
