Police seek person of interest in stabbing
City police say they hope to reach a person of interest as well as witnesses to a stabbing Friday in Uptown that sent a city man to the hospital.
Damon Burns, 47, who was stabbed at about 5:30 p.m. in front of 35 N. Front St., has been released from the HealthAlliance Hospital, said Det. Lt. Thierry Croizer.
Croizer said Burns suffered puncture wounds in the attack. The weapon has not been identified and was not recovered, he said.
Burns is “familiar with the individual” who stabbed him, Croizer said. He said police have spoken with Burns and he has provided a statement.
Croizer said the investigation remains active, but he did not identify a motive for the attack.
Spectators who watched police work at the scene of the incident on Friday said the victim was “jumped” in the attack, but they declined to be interviewed by a reporter.
