JENSEN BEACH, FL (WFLX) - He was stabbed 11 times, almost bled to death, and, at the time, his attacker was unknown. Now, a year and a half later, he's attacker is behind bars; however, a Treasure Coast man is left with the scars and pain of that frightful night.

Paul Kneuer plays that frightful day over and over again in his head. He survived, but medical care isn't cheap. And, he fears, without proper care, he will be paralyzed.

"I just heard a constant pounding and banging on the front door," he recalled.

It was December 2008, Paul Kneuer knew something was wrong. A strange man was at his door. "He said, 'Are you Paul'? I said, 'Yes?' He said, 'Well, you're messing with my girl.'"

Paul says Keith Inchierchiere started to attack him. Paul fought back yelling for his ailing father. The two continue to fight, then, things went from bad to worse. "He pulled a tire iron, and he beat me upside the head and the back," he said.

After that, Kneuer says, the man pulled a knife on him stabbing him 11 times. Paul was rushed to St. Mary's.

"My legs constantly feel cramped -- almost like a Charlie horse -- but I feel that at all times. It's like a constant tightness," Paul described.

But the pain of that night hasn't gone away.

Keith Inchierchiere, the attacker, told deputies his girlfriend worked with Paul, and he went to his home to talk about work -- issues his girlfriend had with Paul.

Inchierchiere was sentenced to 70 years in jail. "I'm happy, but it doesn't do anything for me. I mean, I have a settlement, but, I don't think, I will see it," admitted Paul.

Now, he lives with constant pain. "I'm petrified of being a total paraplegic." He can barely walk; the knife blade hit his nerves.

"The biggest fear is if you see a doctor, and, they say, 'If you were only here five weeks ago, we could have done something,'" said one family member.

His family has been a huge support for Paul. Now, he needs the community's support. Medical bills are mounting.

He hopes money will come from somewhere to keep him walking.

You can help Paul. There is a benefit Thursday night at Club Med in Port St. Lucie.

Tickets for the dinner and all you can drink are $25 in advance and $45 at the door. To find out all the details and how you can help, you can go to his Facebook page.
