COEBURN STABBING
COEBURN, Va. -

A man is rushed to the hospital after police say he was stabbed outside of a local grocery store.

Here's what we know: Coeburn Police believe it was an attempted robbery at the Food City in Coeburn, Virginia.

Coeburn Police Chief Scott Brooks tells us the victim was stopping by to cash a check. We've learned the victim is a Food City employee that was off duty at the time when he was stabbed in the chest.

Chief Brooks says two suspects have now been arrested after they drove away from the scene, " We had several eye-witnesses who gave us information about what they [two suspects] were driving, what they looked like. We gave that information to the Wise County Sheriff's Office. They stopped the vehicle matching that description."

Coeburn Police will be using security video in their investigation. Names of the suspects, as well as the victim, are not being released at this time.
