Investigators are searching for two men they believe brutally attacked a man in Clarkson Thursday evening.

Police tell News10NBC the men walked up to a home in the 2200 block of Clarkson Parma Townline Road and tried to rob a man inside the home. Officers say, during the robbery attempt, the 53-year-old victim was stabbed multiple times in the chest. The victim was rushed to Strong Memorial Hospital.

Investigators say the men ran off and they are still searching for them. There's no word yet on what, if anything, was stolen from the home.

If you live in the area, deputies say you should be vigilant of anything that seems suspicious.

"We're not saying that the neighbors are or are not in danger," says Lieutenant Andy Delyser. "We're asking neighbors to remain vigilant, if they see something suspicious to be careful and call 911"
