CLEARWATER, FL (WFLA) - Clearwater police are actively searching for two suspects accused of breaking into an apartment and stabbing the resident.

Police say the victim came home around 4 p.m. to find a man looking in a closet inside his apartment at Turnbury Apartments on U.S. 19 N.

The resident was stabbed after he confronted the suspect, and taken by helicopter to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg. He was treated and released later Wednesday night.

Another second suspect was also inside the apartment, a spokesperson says.

Investigators say the knife had been used to cut wires on electronic devices, and the victim's property had been stacked by the door.
