VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

A Valdosta man was recovering Thursday after being stabbed in the abdomen.

34 year-old John Young was walking in the 900 block of Blanton St. around 8:45 p.m. Wednesday when someone ran up to him and stabbed him with a knife.

Police said Young ran to a nearby store to call police because he didn't have a cell phone, but as of Thursday morning police believed he may not be telling the whole story.

"The story that he's sayin' is that he was able to fight the person off but that the person never said anything to him. So, he doesn't know exactly why the person was doin' this. Said that the person didn't get anything away from him, so we're not sure if this was an attempted robbery or what this was," said Valdosta Police Department Lt. Aaron Kirk.

Young was treated at South Georgia Medical Center Wednesday night and released.

Call Valdosta Police if you have any information.
