Most Wanted: Man wanted after trying to steal a car, stabbing car owner

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The Fayette County Sheriff's Office is looking for Justin Hager. His last known address was on Daniel Court in Lexington.

Officials say, earlier this month, he tried to steal a car from a Lexington family and ended up stabbing the car's owner. The owner of the car had started the car and gone back inside to get his kids. While he was away, officials say Justin Hager got into the car and tried to drive away. The car, though, got stuck on some ice, which gave the owner of the car time to get to the car. When he opened the car door, deputies say Hager stabbed the man and then left in a different car.

Hager actually has four warrants out for his arrest, including robbery first, assault first, wanton endangerment and receiving stolen property.

If you see Justin Hager, call the Fayette County Sheriff's Office.
