Geneva County Stabbing

Just after 10 a.m. Monday a motorist called E911 and reported a bleeding man lying in the middle of the bridge on New Hope Road in the Bellwood Community.

Authorities say Billy Bowman had a 12-inch slash wound across his chest.

The 27-year-old reportedly told Geneva County deputies that he was driving when someone fired at his pick-up truck causing him to crash into a patch of trees.

That’s when a white man with facial piercing pulled him out of the vehicle and stabbed him.

Bowman was treated and released from a Dothan area hospital.

Authorities are looking for the suspect and a motive.
