Man held in stabbing outside Waffle House

A man walked into a Lexington Waffle House on Wednesday afternoon and told employees to call the police; he had just stabbed a guy in the car outside.

While the man waited for police to arrive at the restaurant on Athens-Boonesboro Road, the stabbing victim drove himself to St. Joseph East, Lexington Police Lt. Edward Hart said. He had wounds to his arms and chest, but none were life-threatening.

Police arrived and the admitted assailant was charged with assault and carrying a concealed deadly weapon, Hart said.

The incident occurred about 5:45 p.m. It was unclear what the attack's motive was, but the men knew each other, Hart said.
