Police: Man Stabbed with Screwdriver in Burlington Home

BURLINGTON, Kan. (AP) — A man is in critical condition after police say he was stabbed with a screwdriver in his Burlington home. WIBW-TV reports the man was injured Saturday afternoon. The Coffey County Sheriff's Office says the man called 911 to report his home and trailer had been broken into. Police say that while he was on the phone with dispatch, a man who was hiding in the home jumped out with a large screwdriver and stabbed the victim in the stomach. The victim was transported to a Topeka hospital. According to Coffey County Sheriff Randy Rogers, police are still looking for a suspect described as a 6-foot-tall black male wearing blue jeans and sandals. Rogers said the suspect was also wearing a red or maroon shirt.
