(WWJ) Police are searching for two men wanted in an assault and carjacking on Detroit's west side.

It happened on Sunday, Dec. 6, around 11:15 a.m., at the Sunoco gas station on Michigan Ave.

Police said the two suspects approached a 64-year-old man, who'd just gotten out of his car, and demanded money. When the man refused to hand over his cash, one of the suspects allegedly pulled a knife and stabbed him.

The man was taken to a hospital where he was treated for a laceration, and listed in stable condition.

As the investigation continues, police are hoping someone in the public can identify the suspects, who were caught on surveillance camera.

Suspect number one is described as a Black male, wearing all black clothing, armed with a knife.
