ONECO -- A man was reportedly assaulted and stabbed by four suspects in Oneco Friday evening, the Manatee County Sheriff's Office said.
The 25-year-old man was walking in Oneco at about 7:30 p.m. when he told deputies he was approached by two males. The victim said up to two more males joined them, jumping on him, a news release said.
The suspects did not try to rob the victim, who told deputies he believes they mistook him for someone else. During the scuffle, the victim sustained two puncture wounds to his back from an unknown object, deputies said.
