BATH — The Police Department is seeking the public’s help identifying a man involved in the stabbing and attempted robbery of another man on Western Avenue at about 6:45 a.m. on July 7.
The victim told police he was leaving the Big Apple store when two unidentified men approached him. One of the men asked him if he had any money and demanded that he hand over his wallet. The victim was allegedly attacked by the man when he refused.
