Two men in critical condition after stabbing

(WMC-TV) - Two people stranded in the woods were brutally attacked and left for dead early Sunday morning.

Police said two men were mudding around 2:30 a.m. Sunday on the Wolf River Trails in the Wolf River Bottoms near I-40 and Austin Peay when their Jeep got stuck.

According to police, when a man on an ATV found the men, a fight broke out and the suspect pulled out a knife and critically stabbed both victims.

One stabbing victim had to be rescued from the woods with a tractor.  The second victim was taken to a fire station at Raleigh LaGrange and Covington Pike with several stab wounds.

Both victims were hospitalized in critical condition Sunday night.

The suspect, described as a stocky, bearded man in his thirties is still on the loose.
