Conway police are investigating an alleged stabbing that occurred late Sunday at the 3400 block of Irby Drive.

According to Conway Police Department public information officer La Tresha Woodruff, the victim said he was in his home when a masked man dressed in black gained entry to the residence through an unlocked door and stabbed him.

The victim received a single stab wound to the chest, Woodruff said, before the victim’s wife and daughter heard him yell and came out of their bedrooms.

According to Woodruff, the masked man fled the residence before the victim’s wife or 14-year-old daughter saw him.

The initial report provided by CPD contains a statement from the victim’s wife because an officer was unable to speak with the victim, according to the report.

The victim’s wife told police she didn’t see anything because she was in a bedroom with the door closed, and "her husband could not tell her much about his attacker, but that he wore a mask."

Woodruff said the victim was flown via medical transport to St. Vincent Hospital due to the critical location of the wound.

His condition was not known at press time Monday.

Woodruff said the victim did not know the identity of his attacker.
