SWAT called to Manchester apartment after stabbing
MANCHESTER — A man suffering from stab wounds arrived at the Elliot Hospital about 11 a.m. Friday which resulted in SWAT surrounding 241 Joliette St., first floor, where police believe he was wounded.
Capt. Mark Sanclemente said Joliette Street, between Bremer and Mason streets, was shut down for about two hours. Initially, it was thought there could be more victims inside but that was not the case. Police secured the apartment for detectives who were obtaining a search warrant.
Jerry Vincent, who lives on the second floor, said when he saw police, he immediately came outside.
“All I know was SWAT was outside and I came out because I know I wasn’t in trouble,” he said. “It was real crazy, really surreal the stuff going on.”
Sanclemente said the man’s injuries are not life-threatening. Investigators do not believe the incident was random and Sanclemente said there is no reason for the public to be concerned about their safety.
