New Bern Police Investigate Stabbing

A man was stabbed after police say a friend gave another man a ride Thursday night.

New Bern police say Patrick Rhyne was stabbed in the face and arm while in the front seat of his friends car.

Police say the two were riding down Hancock Street when a man approached the vehicle and asked for a ride. Rhyne says the man was in the back seat and became agitated as they drove. As the driver was slowing down to let the man out, police say that's when he stabbed Rhyne.

The man jumped out of the car near the Taco Bell on Neuse Boulevard and was never seen again. He is described as a white man in his 30's, clean shaven with spikey brown hair. He was wearing a white t-shirt and jeans.

Rhyne was treated for his injuries at CarolinaEast Medical Center.

    Another thug. If he gets caught just another thug in the hood we taxpayers have to pay for. 3 free meals and cot. I wonder where his father is and if his mother is on welfare and foodstamps. Oh no but it says his is a white man and we all know they do not commit crimes. Yeah Right!!!!

    Thug, that's why I never pick up hitchhikers. I am glad the victim wasn't killed. Sounds like the thug was high or a nut case! I guess now we will have to register all knives?
