* Elizabethton Police are investigating a stabbing
incident which occurred around 12:34 a.m. Thursday in the
parking lot of Redi-Mart on Bluefield Avenue. William Scott
Fleenor, 19, of Hampton, told officers that passengers in
a silver/gray Subaru stationwagon started staring at him at
an intersection and then started "flipping him off." When
the light turned green, Fleenor let the Subaru go on ahead
and didn't immediately follow it. As he began traveling east
on Siam Road, he noticed the vehicle waiting for him in the
curve before the traffic light at the intersection of Bluefield
Avenue. The vehicle pulled into Redi-Mart and allowed the
passengers to exit. As Fleenor went through the light, the
males began yelling at him and asking him to pull in. He pulled
into the lot to ask them what their problem was and as he
started to roll down his window, one of the males punched
him in the left cheek and mouth. Fleenor said he exited his
pickup and started fighting back. The other white male also
started swinging at him, he said. The first male then pulled
out a pocket knife and stabbed him in the leg. One of the
males was described as short and stocky with red hair, freckles,
and a thin mustache. He was wearing a yellow cap with blue
bill and an "M" on the front. The second male was described
as tall and skinny, and wearing a sleeveless T-shirt with
open sides. Detective Greg Workman is investigating.
