MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — A woman who told police she was stabbed and then robbed by a man while walking to a Sheetz on Tuesday night was treated at City Hospital in Martinsburg, police said Wednesday.

Charlotte Mae Hall, who was stabbed twice in the stomach, underwent surgery to insure there were no life-threatening injuries, West Virginia State Police Sgt. C.A. Mahood said in a news release.

Hospital spokeswoman Teresa McCabe said Wednesday night Hall was in good condition.

Hall told police she was walking toward the Sheetz at 1465 Edwin Miller Boulevard from her father's apartment along Jennings Drive when she was attacked by a white male, according to the news release.

State Police Trooper J.D. Schuessler, who responded at 7:27 p.m. on  Tuesday, found Hall at her father's residence, according to the news release. Hall told police she was walking to Sheetz to get her son something to eat when the suspect, a tall white male with brown hair, attacked her.

He was wearing a blue and gray flannel shirt and blue jeans, police said.

Thinking her attacker had only hit her in the stomach, the victim told police she did not realize she had been stabbed until returning home.

The suspect took her credit cards and cash from her wallet, police said. 

Troopers and Berkeley County Sheriff's deputies searched the area for the suspect, but could not find him, according to the news release.
