NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Three people are charged with stabbing a Nashville businessman at a Hermitage greenway Wednesday afternoon.

Metro police said Terry Tramel got into a verbal confrontation with the suspects as he walked to his vehicle in a parking lot near the Stones River Greenway's entrance.

Tramel, 49, was stabbed repeatedly and underwent lifesaving surgery following the attack. 

"When he came in, there was trauma to his neck with stab wounds everywhere, but the major concern was the stab wound to the neck," Tramel's daughter, Jennifer told Nashville's News on Thursday.  "[He's] very tough, but recovering much better than the doctors anticipated."

Unable to speak, Jennifer said her father is doing his best to communicate.

"He's got a pen and a paper. He's writing to us and mouthing words or pointing to his watch when he wants to know the time," she said.

Jennifer said she believes her father's good health and prayers are helping him make a quick recovery.

"We are so thankful for the amount of prayers, and I ask that they continue. We got a long road ahead of us," she added.

Following the stabbing police arrested Marcus Marcelo, 30, Rachel Marcinek, 20, and Joseph Ostling, 36, on felony aggravated assault charges.

Ostling is additionally charged with public intoxication, resisting arrest and criminal trespassing.

The suspects are believed to be homeless and Marcelo and Marcinek are believed to have traveled to Nashville by freight train from Arizona.

The knife believed to have been used in the attack has been recovered.

Tramel remains hospitalized. He was last listed in critical, but stable condition.

Metro police investigators said they hope to talk with Tramel once his condition improves.
