A Maine man was stabbed multiple times while trying to stop multiple people from stealing his bicycle, according to WGME 13.

The news station is reporting that the confrontation happened early in the morning in the city of Sanford, Maine. It's being reported that police initially were responding to gunshots in the area of Heritage Crossing and Emery Street at around 4:45 this morning.

When police arrived they found a man that was suffering from multiple stab wounds. The 38-year-old stabbing victim told police that he had been stabbed after two men approached him and attempted to steal his bike.

During the confrontation, one of the attackers allegedly fired multiple rounds off from a gun while the other attacker stabbed the victim repeatedly in the back. The 38-year-old victim was then taken to Maine Medical Center where WGME is reporting that he is in stable condition as of Thursday morning.

The news stations said that it was unknown whether or not either of the suspects had been caught or arrested, though they did say that police assure the public that there is no known threat at this time.
