Adams stabbing remains under investigation; no threat seen


ADAMS — Town police continue to investigate a stabbing Friday that left one person injured.

Police Chief Richard Tarsa said a police responded to a disturbance call around 9 p.m. at 3 Gavin Ave. and found one person with a stab wound to the right calf.

The two people present told police that a white male intruder wearing a hoodie and using a bandana to cover his face entered the home abruptly, said nothing, stabbed the victim in the leg and left without uttering a sound.

Police have declined to identify the victim.

Others who were in the vicinity of the address were interviewed by police and told police that they believed they heard loud verbal arguing between a male and a female coming from the home.

The victim was transported by Adams Ambulance Service to Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield. The wound was not believed to be life-threatening.

No arrests have been made and the investigation will continue, Tarsa said.

Addressing rumors he has heard in the community, Tarsa stressed that police did not believe residents were in danger.

"I want to assure people that there is not a masked man stabbing people at random," he told The Eagle. "You have to look at the facts and have faith in the investigation."
