The assault took place about 8 p.m. on or near Stower Lane in Norwalk. The victim went to an area business to seek help after being stabbed “several” times in the abdominal area, police said. The exact location of the assault is not known. The victim’s name is not being released.
The victim, who was taken to Fisher-Titus Medical Center by North Central EMS, is recovering from non-life threatening injuries, Det. Sgt. Dave Daniels said. The victim had been released from the hospital by 7 p.m. Friday.
There are still several missing “pieces to the puzzle” of the case, including a motive in the stabbing, Daniels said. The victim told police he had some items taken during the altercation. Police are not releasing what those items were, as the investigation is ongoing.
The victim described his alleged assailants as two black men who “are taller than him.” Daniels said the victim is about 6-foot-1.
“He said one was a little taller than the other and had a ... muscular build,” Daniels said. “The shorter one, he said, was thinner. And they were wearing darker clothing.”
The detective said police are still gathering information from the victim and people who were in the area around the time of the event.
“We want to get as many tips as we can get,” he said. “The more we get, the more pieces of the puzzle we can put together. Any detail someone might have — it might be something really important. It might not be. But at least we’ll know. And it might be something that someone already said before but then we have two people who gave us the same information, and then we know it’s verified information at least.”
