A 19-year-old Macon man was stabbed in the back during a robbery on Forest Hill Road between 10:30 p.m. Thursday and 12:06 a.m. Friday, according to Macon police.
Thomas Pyles told police he was walking on Forest Hill Road away from the Flash Foods located at 3889 Vineville Ave. when a small red Ford SUV approached him. A man from the vehicle called to him, and Pyles walked to the vehicle thinking it was someone he knew, according to a police report.
Two other men then grabbed him and demanded money. When Pyles fought back, the men stabbed him in the back and took his wallet and cigarettes before leaving in the car toward Vineville Avenue, according to the report.
Pyles walked home and went to a local hospital by private vehicle, according to the release.
