Officers investigating determined that Knuckey had been arguing with a group of juveniles near the mall before stabbing the teen with a knife, according to the release.

According to charging papers, Knuckey told police he had been walking in the area and was attacked by a group of teens, one of whom drew a knife on him. When one of the teens tried to stab him, Knuckey “redirected the knife,” he told police. Officers said surveillance footage of the incident shows Knuckey being the aggressor during the incident. Police later found the knife in the woods.
