A 23-year-old Cordova man is recovering from two stab wounds he received Tuesday afternoon, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.
Deputies met the 23-year-old at the Regional Medical Center.
The 23-year-old told deputies he was hanging out with friends when an 18-year-old family member became upset because he was being picked on.
The 23-year-old told deputies that the 18-year-old went inside their residence and locked the door. The 23-year-old tried to gain entry by banging on the door.
The 18-year-old opened the door and allegedly yelled and used profanity.
The 23-year-old said the 18-year-old pushed him and that he retaliated by pushing back.
The 18-year-old then went back inside the house and emerged with a knife in each hand, the older man said.
The 23-year-old said he picked up a chair because the 18-year-old began to throw the knives at him.
He picked up a stick to defend himself. When the 18-year-old got close to him, he stabbed the 23-year-old twice in the chest, the report said.
The 23-year-old told deputies he feared for his life and thought the teen would kill him.
