On September 4th, the West New York PD received a call about a stabbing near the intersection of 59th and Madison Streets around 2:20 p.m., according to Computer-Aided Dispatch (CAD) reports obtained through an Open Public Records Act request.

The victim was stabbed in the lower back and was having difficulty breathing before being transported to the Jersey City Medical Center. Meanwhile, the attacker fled in a gray Hyundai that had no license plates and remains at large.

Police received a witness statement regarding a potentially related aggravated assault at 60th and Madison Streets, as well as a bloody t-shirt worn by the victim, the report says.

At least two other people witnessed the attack and one person tried to fend off the attacker with a stick. The investigation into the incident is ongoing, authorities said.
