MANCHESTER, NH – Police are investigating a fatal stabbing on Union Street on Dec. 4, and are seeking the public’s help in tracking down the assailant.
Late Sunday afternoon an injured adult male was brought to a local Manchester hospital. That man was found to have a stab wound and despite emergency medical treatment, later died. The victim’s identity is being withheld pending notification of his next of kin. An autopsy is expected Tuesday.
Based on the information gathered so far, it appears that the victim was involved in a physical altercation with another man in the vicinity of 385 Union St. in Manchester, at about 4 p.m. The assailant is described as a white male, approximately 5-foot-7 with a thin build, “buzz cut” hair, and a tattoo on the right side of his face and/or neck.
