Investigators learned the victim had been walking on the sidewalk when he stopped to talk to a man and woman. Police say during the course of the conversation, the man “cut the victim with a knife” and then fled the area.

The victim was treated at the scene by paramedics before being transported to hospital with serious injuries.

Officers discovered the knife on a nearby street and made an arrest roughly three hours later at a home in the area of Buchanan Ave. and Spring St.
