March 25, 2002|BY MARLO BARNHART

Hagerstown City Police were looking for a man who stabbed a male employee at the 7-Eleven Store on Dual Highway Sunday around 9:40 p.m., possibly during a robbery attempt.

Community Rescue Service responded to the convenience store at 9:42 p.m. to treat the store cashier. A spokesman at CRS said the man's injuries were not life-threatening.

The injured employee arrived at Washington County Hospital just before 10 p.m.

In an effort to locate the suspect, additional police and K-9 officers were summoned to the store at 1673 Dual Highway, police said.

Maryland State Police and the Washington County Sheriff's Department were given only a vague description of the assailant and a possible companion. Both were described as black men dressed in dark clothing.

The assailant was believed to be about 6 feet tall while the companion was described as shorter, police said.

A better description was expected to be available once the store videotape could be viewed, police said.
