NORWALK, Conn. – One suspect has been arrested in connection with a stabbing in South Norwalk on Monday night, police said.

Norwalk Hospital staff contacted police after a patient was admitted with non-life-threatening stab wounds at about 9:30 p.m. Monday. The victim, a 41-year-old man, had wounds to his torso and right arm, police said. He was still in the hospital receiving treatment as of Tuesday morning but is expected to survive, police said.

Norwalk Police investigators located a blood trail on Monroe Street, near the South Norwalk train station and the Townhouse Gardens housing complex. Investigators identified Mustafa Muhammad, 43, of Monroe Street as one of the suspects involved, Lt. Thomas Mattera said Tuesday.

Police declined to discuss the investigation further, as they believe more suspects are involved.

“The investigation is ongoing, and we expect further arrests,” Mattera said.

Muhammad was arrested early Tuesday and charged with first-degree assault. He was held on $20,000 bond. He appeared in Norwalk Superior Court Tuesday.

Don't try to take that mans passengers

Wow...suspect looks just like one of the foul mouthed taxi drivers that block state st all the time..

Poorly lit parking lot elimination of cabs on that side with radios a Parking dept who is never seen on the scooter this all on the Northbound side and its not like Duff Perone and Morris don't know there is crime there but Norwalk is safe becuase why?Last week waiting for a family member we watched a man open peoples car doors asking for money its not safe and never has been without something that prevents bad behavior.Guess not until another election will any our elected officials care about safety for those who use the T.Its amazing who cares during an election not amazing after all these years who plays the voters.Where the victim took himself to the hospital may suggest he has called and waited for an ambulance in Norwalk before.
