A New York man was hospitalized after allegedly being stabbed multiple times by a Springfield man during a robbery earlier today (Monday) at a Lebanon gas station.
According to the Lebanon Police Department, a 27-year-old New York man had stopped at the Express Stop on MIllcreek Road to get gas when he was allegedly assaulted and robbed by a 38-year-old Springfield man.
The suspect, who had arrived at the gas station in a truck that had been stolen in Springfield that morning, had parked next to the New York man’s car. He walked up to the car and attempted to steal it from the New York man. During a struggle over the car, the New York man, who was sitting in the car, was stabbed multiple times, the police state in a press release.

Shortly after the suspect took off in the New York man’s car, he was spotted by Laclede County deputies westbound on Route 66 near Conway. The suspect later led law enforcement from multiple counties on a high speed chase (sometimes traveling in excess of 100 MPH) on Interstate 44. The chase ended in Springfield when the suspect wrecked the car, and he was apprehended, according to the police.
