Meriden police view surveillance video to help solve downtown stabbing


MERIDEN — Police are looking at nearby security camera video to help solve a Monday night stabbing downtown.

Sgt. Darrin McKay, police spokesman, said the victim dropped off cigarettes to a friend staying at the homeless shelter on Saint Casimir Drive and was walking on the sidewalk near the shelter when he saw two men walking toward him.

One stabbed him from behind in the shoulder and both fled. Robbery was not the motive, McKay said.

The victim, whose identity was not released, was taken to Hartford Hospital for non-life threatening injuries, McKay said.

Detectives have no leads on suspects or a motive, McKay said.

Police are looking at security camera video from nearby businesses to help solve the crime.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information is asked to call Detective John Wagner at (203) 630-6334.
