The victim of a Friday stabbing walked across town after the attack and only went to the hospital because EMTs insisted, Carthage police said.

Assistant Chief Blake Smith said the incident involved family violence, so there will be a report filed. But police had not arrested anyone in the incident because the victim did not want to press charges, Smith said.

The victim’s injuries were not severe. Smith said after the incident the victim walked from the scene of the incident on Live Oak Street to Brassell Street.
