Bloomfield Township police are looking for a suspect who robbed and stabbed a teen on Monday night.

Police say the teen was riding his bike when he was about to pass a man walking. That's when the man stepped in and stopped him, demanding his wallet, backpack and bike. A struggle ensued and the man stabbed the teen twice, threatening to kill him several times.

The teen was able to get away and call police.
