Police looking for hitchhiker accused of stabbing and trying to carjack man

KILLEEN - Police are searching for a hitchhiker accused of stabbing a man and trying to carjack him after he was picked up while walking on the side of the road.

The victim told police it started about 10 p.m. Tuesday night, when he picked up a man walking and gave him a ride. The driver was handling a switchblade knife while he was driving. The hitchhiker asked if he could see the knife, and the driver gave it to him.

The hitchhiker then threatened the driver with the knife and tried to rob him and take his car. The two began fighting inside the car, and the driver was stabbed in the shoulder.

The driver told police he was eventually able to push the hitchhiker out of the car. He then drove to a hospital for treatment and called police.

Police have not released further information about the incident or a description of the suspect.
