A man suffered life-threatening injuries this morning when he was stabbed in an incident at a mobile home park on Rock Hill’s south side near the intersection of Saluda Street and Heckle Boulevard, police said.

The male victim, in his 20s, has not yet been identified but was stabbed in the chest around 7:30 this morning, said Mark Bollinger, spokesman for the Rock Hill Police Department. The man was airlifted from the scene at 1307 Saluda St. to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte.

Rock Hill detectives, patrol, and forensics officers are on the scene at the mobile home park.

Tonya Funderburk, a neighbor, said she came back from an errand and saw the victim injured. She said she knows both of the men who live near her at mobile home 12 by first name and by sight. Police had both the residence and the yard fenced off with crime scene tape Monday morning.

“All I saw was his body laying on the ground bleeding,” Funderburk said.

Funderburk is unsure what argument or confrontation led to the stabbing.

“Whatever was said I don’t know,” she said.

Funderburk added that violence in the park is not an everyday occurrence, but the morning stabbing was “drama” for neighbors that residents don’t need.

Police have not released any other details about the stabbing, what led up to it, or the names of the people involved. It is unclear if police have a suspect in custody.
