According to authorities, a homeless Florida guy who was wearing bloodied clothing stabbed a hiker he made friends with on a trail for “unknown reasons” on Tuesday.
After the hiker and his wife set up camp and met the homeless man, who was later identified as 37-year-old Jonathan Davis, the stabbing occurred on the Florida Natural Scenic Trail in Crestview, according to the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office.
Authorities claim that Davis stabbed the Ohio-based hiker, 45, in the abdomen before fleeing the scene. The cause of the attack was not known, according to the investigators.
The hiker’s wife made her way to a location where she could use her cellphone and made an emergency 911 call. Her spouse was sent in a severe condition to a nearby hospital, but he was expected to live.
