NATCHEZ — Natchez Police are looking for two suspects involved in a knife attack on Wheeler Drive.

Police Chief Mike Mullins said two males driving a black, old-model Ford approached their victim at 2 p.m. Saturday to inquire about yard work.

“One suspect then pulled out a knife and asked for money,” Mullins said. “The victim said he had no money, and the suspect cut the victim on the chin.”

The victim managed to wrestle the knife from his attacker before the suspects fled. The knife has since been turned over to police.
