KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A man was treated for minor injuries Thursday night after being stabbed by an acquaintance.

Joshua Barnebey, 33, of Knoxville, was stabbed by another man in the parking lot of 4860 N. Broadway in Fountain City around 10:34 p.m.

Barnebey told responding officers that he was driving through the business parking lot when another man threw a rock and hit his car.

The victim told officers that he got out of his car to confront the suspect and wound up in a fight with the suspect.

Barnebey received two small stab wounds on the left side of his back. He went to Physicians Regional Medical Center, formerly St. Mary's Hospital, for treatment of two minor cuts and was later released.

According to a police report, the victim and the suspect are acquaintances and have apparently been involved in an ongoing argument. 

Police said the victim was less than cooperative with officers and was uncertain if he would press charges.
