ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany doctor was stabbed, beaten and robbed while enroute to work early Monday morning. 

It happened at the four-way stop at North Monroe and 5th Avenue in Tift Park, located behind Phoebe's main campus. 

According to an incident report, Doctor John Phillips IV was heading from Phoebe North to Phoebe Main when he felt his tire start to wobble. 

He told police he got out to see what was wrong when someone hit him over the head and demanded money.

Phillips said he gave the man his wallet and tried to get back in the truck.

That's when Phillips said the man pulled out a knife and stabbed him in the arm and stomach.

Some of the physician's tools were stolen, including the head flash-light he was using to fix his vehicle.

Phillips told police that he then took the knife from the attacker and drove to the hospital.

The physician has undergone surgery and is recovering at Phoebe. 

Albany Police are searching for the suspect. If you have any information about this attack, please contact the APD at 436-TIPS.
