One week and no major developments in stabbing

It’s been a week since a man was stabbed in Norwalk after reportedly being robbed and police still are seeking the public’s help on bringing the case to a close.

The Norwalk Police Department’s manhunt continues for the two unidentified suspects accused of stabbing a man “several times” in the abdominal area on Stower Lane. The victim described his suspected assailants as two black men who “are taller than him.” Detective Sgt. Dave 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 suspects aren’t the only missing puzzle pieces in the case. The exact location of the incident, which occurred about 8 p.m. March 13, is still unknown.

The victim, whose name isn’t being released, said two men assaulted him and took some items before stabbing him. He then made his way to a nearby business to seek help. The victim was transported from there to Fisher-Titus Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries and was released from the hospital by Friday evening.

Police said the nature of the wounds made it so that they couldn’t positively identify the type of weapon used in the attack. 

Despite time going by and several tips from the community, Daniels said the department has seen “nothing major” develop from the case.

Even if a small tip doesn’t solve the whole case, police appreciates “just getting bits of information from the public,” Daniels said. He asked that the community continue to help find the missing “pieces to the puzzle,” by alerting officers to anything they have seen or heard related to that night. 

“We want to get as many tips as we can get,” the detective said.
