A York Township man was stabbed in the back during a robbery outside his home Thursday morning, police said.

It happened in the 2700 block of South Queen Street at 1:10 a.m., York Area Regional Police Sgt. Jeff Dunbar said.

The victim was transported to York Hospital for treatment of his injury, which Dunbar said was not life-threatening.

The victim, whose name has not been released, told police he didn't know the man and woman who robbed him, but said he had gone to the nearby Sheetz convenience store and saw the robbers there, Dunbar said.

The robbers apparently followed the victim to his home, the sergeant said.

A scuffle erupted during the robbery, during which time the victim was stabbed in the back, Dunbar said.

The attackers took his cash and fled, police said.

The robber who stabbed the victim is described as a black male about 6-feet-3 or 6-feet-4, 230 pounds, with short hair and a goatee, police said. He was wearing a white long-sleeve shirt and tan pants.

The second robber is a white female with red hair, who was wearing a teal undershirt, black sweater and dark pants, police said.

Anyone with information that could help investigators identify and arrest the robbers is asked to call police at (717) 741-1259.
