    Hartford police are investigating after a stabbing left one person in critical condition Sunday night.

    Hartford Police Lt. Brandon O’Brien says police were called to 59 Madison Street at 8:16 p.m. Upon arrival, they found a male victim near the intersection of Madison Street and Washington Street, which is nearby Hartford Hopsital. The man was suffering from multiple stab wounds to the torso and was transported to the hospital in critical condition.

    O’Brien says at this point there is no suspect in custody, but they have good information to work with and believe the suspect and victim were known to each other. Sunday night they were waiting for an opportunity to interview the victim.

    “We believe there was some sort of personal dispute but that’s not yet fully evidenced,” said Lt. O’Brien.

    There were several crime scenes on Madison Street Sunday night as police investigated. Police are asking anyone who may have witnessed the incident or have information to contact them at 860 527 6300.
