Shortly after 2:30 Tuesday morning, officers said a Frankfort man was attacked with a knife by another man, who they said was unprovoked.

Police arrived at an apartment on American Way to learn that 58-year-old Robert Tillman was lying on the living room floor when he was allegedly stabbed by Rico Velasquez, 47.

According to investigators, Velasquez was visiting the apartment when he suddenly ran from the bedroom into the living room and attacked Tillman.

They said Tillman fought off Velasquez, who then reportedly ran off to another home, where he was arrested.

Tillman was treated for a cut on his arm.

Velasquez was charged with second-degree assault and booked into the Franklin County Regional Jail.

Police believe alcohol was a factor in the attack.
