Peoria County Authorities are looking for a former employee of the Neal Auto Salvage company in connection with a stabbing.

Being sought is 51 year old Mark Jackson. He's accused of repeatedly stabbing a current employee of the company Friday morning as the company was being opened for business.

The un-named victim is expected to survive his wounds.

Lt. Tim Kenny of the Peoria County Sheriff's office said it's not known if the attack on the employee was the result of his interrupting a burglary, or if the employee was the primary target.
