“There was an altercation at a club here in Charlotte and our victim was followed home by two suspects and attacked and suffered some severe lacerations, some serious injury but non-life-threatening,” said Detective Rick Smith with the CMPD Crime Stoppers.
The detective said the two people did not know each other prior to the altercation that led to the attack.
“I mean you can just look at the size of this knife that he has in his hand. This suspect, he’s very dangerous and we’re hoping to get him identified and into custody,” said Smith.
The doorbell camera footage features audio of the assailant’s voice. Smith said this could help investigators identify the suspect.
“In addition to the public viewing the video, viewing the still pictures, we ask that you take a listen to the voice and you very well may recognize that voice,” noted Smith.
He said he is hopeful the public will be able to help investigators identify the knife-wielding man.
“We definitely want to get him identified and into custody before they have the opportunity to do something like this to someone else,” said the detective.
