OKLAHOMA CITY - Police are looking for a group of suspects that allegedly attacked a metro man with a knife.
It happened when the man was trying to sell a moped Tuesday night in southwest Oklahoma City.
The victim, a 20-year-old man, was trying to sell a moped for $200, and arranged to meet the potential buyer in the well-lit parking lot of the Walmart Neighborhood Market, located in the 1500 block of S.W. 59th.
The victim was ready to make the sale, but the potential buyer didn't show up alone.
Six men allegedly jumped out of a vehicle and attacked the victim with a knife.
Several witnesses outside the Walmart called police.
“When they arrived, they found a victim with multiple stab wounds, none of them were life-threatening, thankfully,” MSgt. Gary Knight, with the Oklahoma City Police Department, said.
Paramedics took the victim to the hospital, but he is expected to be okay.
Witnesses told police they saw the suspects take the moped and drive off in a maroon Toyota SUV and a maroon F-150 truck.
Police say surveillance video from Walmart showed another vehicle may be involved -- a silver four-door Chrysler or Hyundai.
They say some suspects jumped into that car and took off with the SUV.
“Anytime you're selling something, especially to people you don't know, that certainly raises the danger factor,” MSgt. Knight said.
If you're going to sell personal property, police say it is good to do so in a public place, although in this case, there wasn't any security around.
Police and the sheriff's office offer their parking lots and personnel to help prevent these crimes from happening.
The suspects are facing charges for assault and battery with a deadly weapon.
Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers at (405) 235-7300.
