A man was stabbed at a 7-Eleven in Woodbridge after two men came up and asked him to give them his shoes Friday night, according to authorities.

Prince William County Police say they were called to the store at 13990 Jefferson Davis Highway at around 8:20 p.m. Officials say that at around 8:00 p.m., a 25-year-old man was inside the 7-Eleven when the two suspects came up to him and "demanded the victim hand the shoes over to them."

The man said no and then the suspects left, police say. The man finished shopping and was in the process of leaving when one of suspects ran past him and stabbed him in the lower body, authorities say.

Both suspects shouted gang affiliations during the stabbing, according to police.

The attacker tried to stab the man again and then he and the other suspect fled in a blacks sedan, officials say.

The man was able to drive himself to his home close by and call police. He was later taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Police describe the suspect who stabbed the man as a Hispanic male with a goatee in his late teens or early 20s standing about 6 feet tall and armed with an "edged object." He was last seen wearing a black or green jacket with khaki pants and a black hat with purple stripes. The second suspect is described as another Hispanic male in his late teens or early 20s standing about 5' 10". He was last seen wearing a blue North Face hoodie with dark colored pants and a gray and black ski hat.

The search is on for both suspects.
