Pittsfield man seriously wounded in stabbing


PITTSFIELD — City police continue to seek leads into a pair of violent attacks that landed two men in the hospital. A 29-year-old Pittsfield man suffered serious injuries Saturday evening after being stabbed during an altercation with another man around 7:30 p.m. at 108 Linden St., according to the Pittsfield Police department

When officers arrived, they found a civilian witness performing CPR on the victim, who was transported to Berkshire Medical Center where he underwent emergency surgery. The victim is expected to survive, police said.

The stabbing occurred within a half-mile radius of a shooting during the wee hours of Saturday morning.

About 1:30 a.m., a man called police from Union and Center streets to report that he had been shot.

That victim, a 24-year-old man, suffered an abdominal wound that was not believed to be life-threatening.

He declined to tell police who shot him, and he checked himself out of Berkshire Medical Center against medical advice, police said.

As of Sunday evening, police hadn't made any arrests in connection with either violent attack, both of which remain under investigation.

Anyone with information regarding the two open cases is encouraged to call the detective bureau at 413-448-9705.
