SYCAMORE TOWNSHIP, Ohio - A Sycamore Township café worker is recovering after being stabbed multiple times outside his business.
The attack happened late Friday night at the Apple Tree Café at 3920 E. Galbraith Road, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office.
Deputies found the 60-year-old victim lying on the floor in the rear of the business with several stab wounds at about 12:30 a.m. Saturday.
