Victim Stabbed In Back Of Head In East Nashville

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A victim was stabbed in the back of the head during an argument.

The crime happened around 11:15 p.m. Saturday near Main Street and Neill Avenue at a bus stop.

Reports stated the victim and the suspect reportedly got into an argument because the suspect had allegedly harassed people across the street from where he was fighting with the victim.

Police said during the verbal argument, the suspect allegedly pulled out a knife, stabbing the victim in the back of the head.

The victim was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Authorities said they’re working to identify the suspect.

He was described as standing around 6’1’’ tall and weighing approximately 180 pounds. He was wearing blue jeans and a white t-shirt.

UPDATE: Authorities confirmed the suspect, identified as Aljuando D. Hines, reportedly asked the victim at the bus stop for money.

The victim gave Hines a bottle of liquor instead. Police said once Hines drank the liquor, he reportedly became unruly and was taunting people who passed by.

That's when the victim allegedly told him to stop and the argument began.

Authorities said the victim tried to walk away when Hines reportedly slashed the back of his head and arm. Hines then ran away from the scene.

Hines was arrested the following day for an unrelated aggravated assault warrant. He was interviewed about the stabbing and admitted to cutting the victim. However, Hines claimed the victim threatened to shoot him and made movements as if he had a gun.

Following Hines' arrest, an officer spoke with a witness of the stabbing who said the victim tried to walk away before he was slashed in the head, and the witness added he never heard the victim threaten Hines. He also did not see a gun.
