Canton Police investigate stabbing at Hagan CourtBy Canton Citizen
A 45-year-old man, described by police as the caretaker of an elderly resident at 5 Hagen Court, was stabbed late Sunday night, and police said he was conscious and in stable condition at Good Samaritan Hospital as of Tuesday afternoon.
The incident was initially reported to police as a breaking and entering at 11:13 p.m. on Sunday, July 22. Police Lt. Helena Findlen said the victim called police to report the break-in and indicated that two men were attacking him. Fire Lt. Brian Marshall said paramedics treated the unidentified man for five stab wounds — two to his chest, one in his back, and two to his left arm — before he was transported to the hospital.
Findlen said the incident does not appear to be a random act. She said police are following leads and have spoken to many elderly residents; however, she said they “still have a lot of investigating to do.” The weapon used in the stabbing has not been recovered.
None injured in garage accident
There were no injuries to the occupants of a car that struck a free-standing garage at 50 Mechanic Street and caused the garage to collapse on Sunday, July 22, just before 1 p.m. Fire Lt. Brian Marshall said three adults and one child were passengers in the Volvo sedan, but were able to get out of the car safely, although the structure collapsed on top of the car. Ten firefighters and the building inspector were called to the scene. Marshall said the cause of the accident has not been determined.
