NORWALK, Conn. A man was stabbed early Christmas morning on Connecticut Avenue, Norwalk Police Sgt. James Boff said. Boff gave the following account:
The 47-year-old victim said he was confronted by a man on the corner of Connecticut and Scribner Avenues. The man had a knife in his hand and asked for money.
Police were called at 12:32 a.m. The victim had a 6-inch long wound on his lower cheek, which was 1-inch wide at its widest point. He also had a small stab wound in his upper back. He was taken to Norwalk Hospital.
The victim described his attacker as a 5-foot 8-inch to 5-foot 10-inch tall black man, wearing a black shirt and black pants. Police searched the area and did not find anyone fitting the description. Boff did not know if the attacker had gotten any money from the victim.
Also on the police blotter:
? Five shots were reported on Burritt Avenue at 8:43 p.m. on Christmas Eve. A resident said she heard the shots as she and her son were getting out of their car in their driveway. She thought they were fireworks but her 15-year-old son said they were shots, maybe coming from a silver BMW that was going up Burritt Avenue toward Woodward Avenue.
Police checked the area but did not find any shell casings or car that matched the description.
