POUGHKEEPSIE – City police were dispatched to a report of a man who had been stabbed on the sidewalk in front of 382 Main Street on Sunday, August 15, at approximately 11:33 a.m.  When officers arrived, they were advised that the victim had been transported to Mid Hudson Regional Hospital (MHRH) in a private vehicle.

Officers investigating the crime scene found fresh blood on the sidewalk and a pair of common household scissors with a broken handle inches away from one of the sidewalk bloodstains.
