CONYERS -- A 31-year-old Conyers man was stabbed in the back Saturday morning in an altercation with his girlfriend's former boyfriend.
The report of the stabbing was called in to the Conyers Police Department at about 9 a.m. Saturday by the suspect, who told police that he had called 911 immediately after realizing he had stabbed the victim.
Police arrested Randall Cullen Worsham, 32, of 2377 Hodges Farm Road, Mansfield, and charged him with one count of aggravated assault.
According to the incident report and witness statements, Worsham went to his former girlfriend's residence on McCords Corner to take her to breakfast. The girlfriend reportedly got in the car with Worsham, but her current boyfriend came out of the house and confronted Worsham.
Worsham told police he got out of his car and the victim began to push him and take swings at him. Worsham reportedly told the victim that he had a knife and that he would cut the victim if he didn't leave him alone.
Worsham reportedly took a folding knife from his pocket and opened the blade. When the victim swung at Worsham again, he reportedly reached around the victim's left shoulder and stabbed him on the left side of his back.
According to the girlfriend, the victim ran into woods behind the residence because he had an outstanding warrant for probation violation. The Conyers Police K-9 officer was brought to the scene but could not pick up a scent. Conyers Police officers assisted by deputies from the Rockdale County Sheriff's Office conducted a search of the area, but were unsuccessful in finding the victim. Emergency rooms at Rockdale Medical Center and Newton Medical Center were called, but the victim had not been treated at either location.
Police recovered the knife used in the stabbing on top of Worsham's car. He was taken to the Rockdale County Jail.
