Saco Police say a Failed Robbery Resulted in a Man Being Stabbed
Saco Police say a man was stabbed as he walked home from work early Tuesday morning.
It was just before 1:30 when police responded to reports of a man who was knocking on Saco residents' doors, yelling for help. When officers arrived at the area of 102 Common Street, they found a man with a single stab wound to his lower abdomen. He was transported to a local hospital for treatment of what police say was a non-life-threatening injury.
The victim told police that he had been walking home from work when he was approached by a man with a knife. The suspect allegedly demanded money from the victim, who refused to give him anything. At this point, the victim says he was stabbed before the suspect fled on foot.
He described the suspect as a young white male, wearing all dark clothing and a ski mask. At the last report, police were still looking for the suspect.
As the investigation continues, Saco Police hope to hear from anyone who may have information about the incident or may have witnessed the exchange. People who think they may have pertinent information can call the Criminal Investigations Division of the Saco Police Department at 207-282-8216.
