A West Wendover man was stabbed in the abdomen while walking home early Monday.

The man, 26, was approached by two men at about 2:20 a.m. They had a brief conversation, and then one of the men pulled out an unknown object and stabbed the victim. They stole items from the man and then ran away, according to David Wiskerchen, public information officer for the Nevada city’s police department.
