An Indianapolis man is recovering from a stab wound after he says the attacker walked toward him "like a zombie" with a box-cutter in his hand.

Derrick Neal, 28, claims the attack happened last night near 30th and Olney streets on the north side of Indianapolis.

Neal said he was bent over his car when a man walking "like a zombie" stabbed him in the shoulder. Neal told police he doesn't remember if he swung at the unknown attacker first, only that the man swung the box cutter at him.

He was treated at a hospital for the stab wound.
