The Latest: 911 call details stabbing, face-biting attack


TEQUESTA, Fla. (AP) --  A Florida man who tried to stop a teenager accused of killing his neighbors during a random knife attack told a 911 dispatcher he had "no idea" who the assailant was.

The Martin County Sheriff's Office released a tape Tuesday of the call 47-year-old Jeff Fisher made during the attack Monday night. He told the dispatcher he was bleeding heavily from the stab wounds that 19-year-old suspect Austin Harrouff allegedly inflicted on him. He said the assailant had attacked a woman, who was lying motionless in her driveway.

Detectives say 59-year-old John Stevens and his 53-year-old wife, Michelle Mishcon, died in the attack.

Sheriff William Snyder says Harrouff's condition has deteriorated and may not survive. Snyder said earlier that he suffered cuts, bruises and dog bites after deputies had to use a stun gun and a police dog to help pull him off the Stevens as he mauled Steven's face with his teeth.
