Police search for assailant in Manchester stabbing

MANCHESTER - An 18-year-old man, stabbed Thursday night during a party at a Beech Street apartment, remained hospitalized Friday.

Sgt. Craig Rousseau said injuries suffered by Kenny Jean Pierre of 28 Massabesic St., Apt. 2, are serious but not life-threatening.

The stabbing happened about 11:45 p.m. Thursday. Rousseau said Jean Pierre was stabbed after a dispute at a party that was taking place on the third floor of 457 Beech St.

The stabbing happened on the second-floor landing inside the building, according to Rousseau.

He said the "investigation is progressing well," but declined to say whether an arrest is imminent.

"This was not a random act," said Rousseau.

Sgt. Paul Thompson said Thursday night that the victim and the person who stabbed him know each other.
