Up­town stab­bing lands man in hospi­tal

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - FRONT PAGE - Free­man staff

A man was stabbed Fri­day af­ter­noon on North Front Street in the city’s Up­town busi­ness district and was taken to a hospi­tal with in­juries that were not life-threat­en­ing, po­lice said.

The man, whose name was not pro­vided, was con­scious as he was taken to HealthAl­liance Hospi­tal’s Broad­way Cam­pus, city po­lice said at the Up­town scene. They said no ar­rests had been made as of 5:30 p.m. but they be­lieved the vic­tim could iden­tify his at­tacker or at­tack­ers.

The as­sault took place near North Front Street’s in­ter­sec­tion with Wall Street. Po­lice had much of the in­ter­sec­tion blocked off with yel­low tape fol­low­ing the in­ci­dent, pre­vent­ing traf­fic from pass­ing through the area for a short time.

Peo­ple speak­ing to each other while watch­ing po­lice work at the scene said the vic­tim was “jumped” in the at­tack. They de­clined to be in­ter­viewed by a reporter.


The crime scene on North Front Street in Up­town Kingston is cor­doned off with po­lice tape Fri­day af­ter­noon.
