Knoxville Police Investigating a Stabbing in a McDonald’s Parking Lot

Knoxville police are investigating a stabbing.

Police responded to a call last night at McDonald’s on Merchants Drive. They found a 22 year-old victim with stab wounds in the parking lot. He was taken to UT Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say the victim was there to pick up a friend from work when 29 year-old Dustin Daulton thought the victim was yelling at him.

Daulton went into the restaurant then went back outside and physically assaulted the victim then pulled a knife and stabbed him when the victim fought back. Daulton fled after the stabbing, but officers found him and he was taken into custody and is being charged with Aggravated Assault.

The incident is under investigation by the KPD Violent Crimes Unit.
