An autistic man, who many of you have seen walking around Albany, was stabbed Monday as he walked home.

An Albany businessman is offering a thousand dollar reward to help capture his attacker.

51 year old Lance Larson was attacked yesterday afternoon near 12th Avenue and Barnesdale Way. Larson was stabbed in the neck, back and arm by a man who jumped out of an alley. The attacker did not try to rob Larson. 

And Larson says he wants to make sure this attacker does not hurt anyone else.  "I feel like I need to tell this story to tell them we need to take this town back. We want this place to be safer for everyone, "said Larson.

Bo Henry said "We'll give a thousand dollars cash reward to anybody that has any information that will help us with the arrest and conviction of this bad person who had done this to an innocent victim."

If you have any information about this attack on Lance Larson, please call CRIMESTOPPERS at 436-TIPS. You could earn a reward.
