The Valdosta Police Department received a call Thursday morning about an incident on the 300 block of Lee Street Lane.
Officers there found 48-year old Leon Mitchell with several stab wounds to his back. Mitchell has since undergone surgery and is listed in serious condition.
"The case is still under investigation right now we don't know that there are any witnesses," said Lt. Aaron Kirk. "They are following up on some leads, he has given some information, I believe he had some money stolen from him so it's possibly some type of robbery."
Drugs are not believed to have been involved. Anyone having any further information regarding this crime or any other crime is urged to contact the Valdosta Police Department at 229-293-3145 or can remain anonymous at 229-293-3091.
