TROY — A Tipp City man was allegedly stabbed by another male subject in a drug deal gone bad in the 1500 block of Cheshire Road in Troy around 11 p.m. Monday.

Travis Wackler, 23, of Tipp City, sought treatment at the Upper Valley Medical Center for several stab wounds in the back. Troy Police Department’s Capt. Jeff Kunkleman said detectives learned Wackler incurred the stab wounds as he allegedly tried to rob Aaron Barrie, 36, of Troy during a marijuana buy.
