Manhunt Monday

Millington Police released this composite sketch of the man accused of stabbing a woman more than 20 times outside a mental health facility.

MILLINGTON, Tenn. — A Millington woman is blessed to be alive after she narrowly survived a brutal attack two months ago, where she was stabbed 26 times.

She doesn’t want her face shown because she’s afraid, but she’s now speaking exclusively to WREG about her attack in hopes of finding justice.

Millington Police said the attack happened in broad daylight in the parking lot of the Professional Care Services on Navy Road. Detectives said the woman’s attack was completely random.

“If he had a sharper knife, I would be dead,” the victim said.

She said she saw the suspect walking around in the parking lot and even spoke to him moments before he walked up behind her and tried to kill her.

“People were out, people saw him, and he was able to stab someone 26 times and get in his car and drive off,” the victim said.

Officers said he got into a white Nissan, possibly an Altima or Maxima, and got away.

Surveillance cameras were able to capture a picture of his car, and investigators released a composite sketch of the suspect.

The suspect is believed to be about 30-40 years old and about 5-foot-9 with a thin build.

“Everyday, i’m afraid I’m going to hear on the news that somebody else was stabbed,” the victim said. “I’m angry because when I think about it, that day he could have made my child motherless.”

If you know who stabbed the woman or recognize her attacker, you are urged to call the Millington Police Department at 901- 872-3333. All calls are confidential.

Officers do not believe the suspect is from the Millington area.
