A Rocky Mount man is recovering from a knife attack early Thursday and police are looking for the assailant, according to authorities.

Donnie Debro, 44, has outstanding warrants for assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.

Robert Lee Battle, 35, was treated at a local hospital then released.

Debro and Battle were on South Franklin Street at about 12:20 a.m. when they began arguing because one man refused to give the other man a ride, said Cpl. Brad Summerlin of the Rocky Mount Police Department.

Debro then stabbed Battle, Summerlin said.
