Po­lice con­tinue to in­ves­ti­gate a stab­bing in Up­town Satur­day that sent a 47-year-old city man to the hos­pi­tal.

Da­mon Burns, of Kingston, was stabbed at about 5:30 p.m. in front of 35 North Front St., po­lice said.

He was taken to HealthAl­liance Hos­pi­tal’s Broad­way Cam­pus, where he was ad­mit­ted with in­juries that au­thor­i­ties said were not lifethreat­en­ing.

Kingston po­lice on Satur­day said no ar­rest had been made. Po­lice were re­leas­ing no in­for­ma­tion about the type of weapon used, whether they had a sus­pect, or any mo­tive for the at­tack.

On Fri­day, 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 on Fri­day said the vic­tim was “jumped” in the at­tack, but they de­clined to be in­ter­viewed by a reporter.
