Union City police are investigating a man’s claim that he was stabbed and robbed Tuesday night while walking on North Second Street.
Joshua Keith McGowan, 21, told police the incident occurred between 6:30 and 9:30 p.m. when he was approached by two black men while he was walking behind the laundromat on North Second Street, according to a Union City Police Department report.
He said one of the men grabbed him and stabbed him in the back. He said he put his arms up to protect himself and was cut on the left arm.
