Man Shot At, Stabbed During Attempted Robbery In Stamford

STAMFORD, Conn. — A man was shot at and cut on the hand while fending off a would-be robber in Stamford, Lt. Diedrich Hohn said.

The incident occurred Sunday at 8 p.m. on Diaz Street when the victim was approached by the two men, Hohn said. One, who had both a gun and a knife, was described as a 6-foot Hispanic man in his mid-20s wearing all black, the other as a heavyset black man in his mid-20s wearing a black jacket.

The victim grabbed the armed man in an attempt to protect himself, Hohn said. The suspect fired two rounds, both missing, but the victim received a puncture wound on his left hand when grabbing at the  knife, Hohn said.

The black male was not involved in the skirmish, Hohn said.

The 29-year-old victim received stitches at Stamford Hospital and was released, he said.

Police are still looking for the two suspects.
