Police are searching for Brandon Hocker, a man connected to a stabbing on College Street Tuesday night.

Winchester Police officers were called to 221 College St. Apt. 3 at 9:27 p.m. Tuesday after a woman said she was stabbed.

The victim, identified as Shannon Marie Butner, told Winchester Police Sgt. Tom Beall that she knew her attacker, whom she described as a friend.

“She asked the perpetrator to leave the apartment and he stabbed her several times,” Beall said this morning. She did not describe the person as a boyfriend, Beall said.

Butner was stabbed multiple times, but Beall did not know exactly how many wounds she received. He said he saw some around the back of her head.

At press time, police were still searching for suspects in the case and were in the process of obtaining a warrant.
