CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

The case against a man linked to a Christmas Day stabbing was dismissed.

Fifty-three-year-old Lesley Raymond Wilkey had been facing charges of attempted first degree murder.

But the alleged victim, Charles Wheeler, has not been found in order to bring him to court.

Police say Wheeler was drinking a beer on Martin Luther King Boulevard Christmas Day.

He told officers Wilkey demanded the beer before stabbing him multiple times and then running away.

His injuries were non life threatening.

Officers say they found Wilkey a few blocks away, and quickly took him into custody.
