Tomlin Expects Adams to Recover from Stabbing
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Police say a man has been arrested and charged in the stabbing of a Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman during an attempted carjacking early Sunday.
Police said Monday that 25-year-old Michael Paranay of Pittsburgh was arrested and taken to Allegheny County jail on charges of criminal attempted homicide, aggravated assault, attempted robbery and conspiracy. A listed number for him could not be found and it was unclear whether he had an attorney.
Coach Mike Tomlin said 23-year-old Mike Adams is expected to make a full recovery and understands how lucky he is that he was not more seriously hurt.
Adams told officers that he was standing near his truck shortly after 3 a.m. Sunday on Pittsburgh's South Side when he was confronted by three men, one armed with a knife and another with a handgun. He said they tried to carjack him but he didn't have his keys, and one stabbed him twice before the trio fled.
