Metro Nashville Police have been searching for two women accused of cutting a man and then robbing him.

The incident happened at an Exxon gas station on Rosa Parks Boulevard at about 2:45 a.m. Tuesday.

The man, identified as Joshua, told police the two women were waving him down, so he pulled into the gas station to see if they needed help. That's when one of them walked up to his driver's side door and cut his arm. The other woman then approached the window and took money from the man.

“Surprising, eye opening, and we're not invincible. It was awakening,” Joshua said about being stabbed in the arm.

Joshua was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. He said he doesn't have insurance, but a county program for crime victims has been helping him with medical bills.

Investigators said the two women left the gas station in a white sedan. As of Wednesday afternoon, they had not yet been arrested.
