    Massachusetts police are searching for a man wanted in connection with an armed robbery and stabbing early Sunday morning in Raynham.

    Police were first called to the home on Elm Street East at 11 p.m. Saturday after neighbors say there was a loud party.

    "There were a lot of cars - they were parked up and down the main road and along the side roads, kids just coming in and out," recalled one neighbor who did not want to give his name.

    A couple hours later, at 1:10 a.m., police returned and found a man had been stabbed in the neck.

    Authorities say a man was allegedly trying to rob a juvenile when another man stepped in to try and stop him.

    The victim was stabbed in the neck while trying to prevent the robbery. He was was taken to Good Samaritan Medical Center with life threatening injuries.

    Police say the suspect fled the scene in a black Honda Civic with three other men. It's believed he may be from the Quincy area.

    "Probably like a high school party gone bad, you know kids find out and show up," said the neighbor.

    Police released a picture of the suspect that they say was taken around the time of the incident.

    Authorities are hoping someone recognizes the suspect and calls police. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call Raynham Police at 508-824-2717.
