Linn County Sheriff's Office deputies are investigating a stabbing that happened early Saturday morning.
Deputies said Eric Wayne Dille, 44, was approached by two Hispanic men shortly after midnight in the 200 block of South First Street.
The suspects, described as both wearing red shirts, asked Dille if he was the person who sexually abused a child. Dille was then stabbed several times, including in the right side of his neck and right arm.
Deputies said the suspects had been driven to the scene by a woman in a gold 2006 Volkswagen Passat with a Washington license plate of BAM5746.
Dille was taken to the Salem Hospital where he is listed in serious condition.
Anyone with information about the stabbing is asked to contact Linn County Sheriff's Office Detective Rick Burch at 541-967-3950.
