Sylvania resident stabbed, robbed while in his car

A Sylvania man was listed in fair condition at Toledo Hospital last night after he was stabbed in the leg by a man who robbed him on Lucas Street.

Johnny Barnard, 23, of Artwell Drive, told police he was sitting in his vehicle about 10 p.m. in the 1200 or 1300 block of Lucas when the man entered the passenger's side of his car to rob him.

Mr. Barnard told police he gave the man $45 when he noticed that his left knee was bleeding from stab wounds.

He said he drove to the corner of Nebraska and Junction avenues, where a woman helped him and contacted police.

Police are investigating the incident.
