NORWALK, Conn. A Norwalk teenager walked into Norwalk Hospital with a stab wound to the chest early Tuesday morning. Norwalk Police said there were many inconsistencies in his story and are looking for more information from the public. A hospital spokesperson reported that the victim was in satisfactory condition.
The boy said he had been stabbed as he walked through the Ben Franklin schoolyard, located at 165 Flax Hill Road, according to Sgt. Lisa Cotto. He had been walking back to his home after dropping off a friend at the South Norwalk train station and had been attacked by two males he did not know. There was a fight, the boy said, and the man who stabbed him had dreadlocks covering his face.
Although he lives on Taylor Avenue the teen said he ran toward Clay Street, which is the opposite direction from where he lives, and the same distance.
He said he was driven to the hospital just after 2 a.m. by someone he did not know. He said he had seen a guy he knew from high school, whom he knew only as Chris. He said Chris had someone else take him in a green car.
Police went to Clay Street and talked to a girl who said a friend of hersa boy she knows only as Juneycalled someone to take the victim to get help.
Detectives could find no evidence of a crime scene on Clay Street or at Ben Franklin, or on the route the victim said he had walked. "We have reservations about the truthfulness, Cotto said. There are many inconsistencies."
