WINTER HAVEN (FOX 13) - A 30 year-old man has been arrested after stabbing another man over a reported $2 debt.
Winter Haven Police say 30-year-old Michael Stevenson approached the 36-year-old victim while walking along 3rd St. N.W. in Winter Haven around 5:20 Friday evening.
According to the victim, Stevenson told him that he wanted the $2 he was owed back. When the victim argued over the supposed debt, Stevenson stabbed the victim in the upper back and ran away.
"This senseless attack on a citizen walking in his own neighborhood is tragic," said Chief Charlie Bird. "I applaud the swift actions of the residents in the neighborhood who worked with us along with the victim to identify Stevenson and get him behind bars."
The investigation is ongoing.
