STAMFORD, Conn. -- A Stamford man was stabbed in the neck with a box cutter after he was stopped by two men who demanded his money, according to Stamford police Capt. Richard Conklin.
The 26-year-old man told police that he was walking to a friend's house about 1 a.m. Thursday when the men approached him on Myrtle Avenue near William Street, Conklin said.
The men, described as being in their 20s and wearing dark clothing, both spoke English when they demanded the money, he added.
When the victim refused to give them money, one of the suspects reached out and cut him in the neck with a box cutter, Conklin said.
The man then went to Stamford Hospital, where he was treated and released. Police were notified of the event by the hospital, delaying their response to the area to look for the men by an hour, Conklin added.
