While walking in the area, Azre encountered Samuel Hessenauer, whom he did not know.

“At that point, the victim displayed what was believed to be a handgun and attempted to rob Azre. This encounter led to a physical altercation between the two men. During the altercation, Azre pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim [Hessenauer],” Perok said.

The police investigation revealed that Hessenauer’s friends, Dodd, Barr and Poynter, were present and had planned on taking part in the robbery.

Police report that  Hessenauer was stabbed in his upper body; his friends drove him to an area hospital, and police were contacted at that time.

Hessenauer’s injuries were not life threatening. Police suspected the incident was not a random stabbing.
