A man was airlifted to an Atlanta hospital Sunday night after being stabbed during an altercation on Davenport Street in Cedartown.
According to Cedartown Police Chief Jamie Newsome, the unidentified man was conscious and alert at the time and that the emergency transport was only a precautionary measure due to the nature of the wounds received.
An investigation is still underway into the Sunday evening incident, but indications are that the incident may have been in self-defense.
Newsome said the Cedartown Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division is determining whether or not an arrest may be made in the incident.
