VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

Police are asking for the public’s help after a man was mugged and assaulted at a Vancouver park.

According to investigators with the Vancouver Police Department, the man was assaulted at Evergreen Park by three men, though the victim did not stand idly by during the attack.

Police said the man was on his bike around 9:00 p.m. Wednesday when three strangers asked him to come over. When he approached them, the three strangers pulled the victim off his bike and started hitting and kicking him on the ground.

The victim was able to pull out a knife and stabbed one of the suspects in the leg. The three strangers then took off with the victim's bike and cell phone.

Officers were able to find the thief who was stabbed, and that person was treated and taken into custody. Police are still looking for the other two.

The victim only suffered minor injuries to his face.

Police said there was no suspect description yet available, but ask anyone with any information that can help police to call the tip line at 360-487-7399.
