POWHATAN COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) – A stabbing outside a Powhatan bar left one man with a hole in his chest and his family in search of answers. Timmy Worley was stabbed in the chest outside Frisby’s Side Door along Anderson Highway in Powhatan early Sunday morning. Worley said the five-inch stab wound sits just atop his diaphragm.

Worley, who is now out of the hospital, said the person who stabbed him came from behind and that no one who witnessed the stabbing has come forward tell to investigators the truth.

“He left the bar and was getting into his friend’s truck when a man came from behind him and stuck the knife into his side and then ran off,” Worley’s wife wrote in an email. “We have an eight-year-old son that doesn’t understand why someone would do this to his daddy.”

The Powhatan Sheriff’s Office confirmed it received a call from Frisby’s Side Door about 1 a.m. Sunday that advised of a fight in progress.

“Officers responded and investigation revealed that a white male had been stabbed and transported to a local hospital prior to their arrival,” the Powhatan Sheriff’s Office wrote in a statement.

Investigators asked anyone with any information about the stabbing to call the Powhatan Sheriff’s Office at 804-598-5656 or Powhatan Crime Solvers at 804-403-HELP (804-403-4357).
