A 19-year-old man told Conway police a group of men assaulted him and cut him with his own pocket knife.
Police responded to Conway Medical Center about 9:50 p.m. Wednesday where the victim told them about the assault and that he had an altercation with the same group of men at a Conway Wal-Mart store over a parking space the day before the alleged assault, authorities said.
The victim said that Tuesday at Wal-Mart on 2709 Church St., a group of men approached him and his wife and argued with them over a parking spot and later argued with him again inside the store, police said.
The victim said the assault occurred the next day in the area of Depot Road where he had stopped to change a flat tire and was approached by the same group of men, according to the report.
The victim said the men began hitting him so he took out his pocket knife to defend himself. The victim said the men then took his knife and cut his arm, authorities said.
Police said they obtained surveillance footage from Wal-Mart in an attempt to identify the suspects and went back to the area where the assault happened to gather evidence.
Authorities said the investigation is currently ongoing, and noted the incident as a second-degree assault in the police report.
