A 64-year-old Detroit man is recovering at a local hospital after he was viciously stabbed at a gas station.

The unidentified victim spoke to Fox 2 News Detroit about the attack that took place Saturday morning around at 5 a.m. He says he was approached by a would-be-thief who demanded money. Soon after the demand, the attack began. At first, the thief began punching him. Then the punches turned to stabbing and continued until he passed out.

“I didn’t realize that I was bleeding until I hit the floor,” he said. “All the blood started coming out and I got real weak and I couldn’t move.”

The victim was left with stab wounds in his chest and abdomen. He is expected to recovery, but may have to undergo surgery Friday. Police said they’ve arrested a 27-year old Detroit man who lived near the gas station where the attack took place. He’s expected to be arraigned Friday.

During the attack, there were three people standing nearby but neither of them tried to help the victim.

“The three or four other people in the gas station,” he said. “They could have easily held him until the police got there. But they didn’t show any kind of favoritism. It makes me feel like people don’t care what happens to other people. I understood that he had a gun, but I never saw a gun.”

The 64-year-old is still in pain, but says his faith is helping him to deal with it. “It’s not the choice that you make, it’s the choice that God makes,” he said.
