PINELLAS PARK – An 84-year-old man was attacked and stabbed in what police believe was an attempted robbery about 10 a.m. Tuesday, April 1, on 76th Avenue in Pinellas Park.

Pinellas Park police report that Charles Clark suffered serious injuries in the attack. He was transported to an area hospital.

Before he was transported, he explained that he had just pulled into the parking lot and exited his vehicle when he was grabbed from behind by an unknown subject. He struggled to break free and knocked one of the subjects to the ground.

Clark said that he struggled with one of the other male subjects. The subjects didn’t demand anything from Clark as they fought. At one point, one of the subjects produced a knife and Clark was stabbed at least twice. A knife was recovered at the scene that was believed to have been used in the attack.

A passerby saw the attack and ran to aid Clark. He scared the subjects off and they fled the scene on bicycles. Clark believes the motivation for the attack was to steal his vehicle. At this time, the suspects remain at large.

Police are asking the public’s assistance to identify the attackers. The first suspect is a black male in his late teens with average height and weight. The second suspect is a black male in his early to late teens. The third is a Hispanic female, in her early teens, heavier build with “a lot of” red or brown hair, who was continually trying to stuff her hair into a grey sweatshirt hoodie.

Videos of the suspects riding their bikes can be found at https­://ww­w.fac­ebook­.com/­pinel­laspa­rkpol­ice.

Area schools were placed on lockdown while Pinellas Park K-9 units searched the area with the assistance of PCSO air support.
