On August 20th, rangers received a report of a man walking down the parkway covered in blood. Rangers David Hynes and Dan Vrchota responded and found a 41-year-old man with stab wounds to his arm, abdomen and neck. Although he was upright and walking, he did not acknowledge the rangers’ presence. He was taken into custody and treated by the rangers. A local ambulance transported him to a helispot, where he was airlifted to Charlotte Medical Center. He underwent surgery to repair his wounds there and is now in stable condition. His vehicle was found a short distance away in a parkway parking area. Ranger Dustin Gunderson is leading the investigation.
