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.
