Manchester man stabbed seven times in $5 robbery

MANCHESTER — A local man was stabbed seven times early Saturday for the $5 in his pocket, police Detective Robert Keating said.

David Richardson was walking to his car from his girlfriend's house on Auburn Street about 1 a.m. Saturday when he was approached by two white men wearing bandanas who demanded his wallet, Keating said.

&#';He said &#';no,' and subsequently a fight took place,&#'; Keating said. &#';One of the subjects took out a knife and stabbed the victim seven times.&#';

Keating said the attackers ended up stealing $5 from Richardson and ran away, heading north. They were not found during a police search.

Richardson was taken to Elliot Hospital, where he was in stable condition Saturday morning, Keating said.
