Burlington police look for stabbing suspects

Burlington, Vermont - November 7, 2010

Burlington Police are looking for suspects in the early morning robbery and stabbing of a man on North Willard street in Burlington.

Police say the victim -- a young male whose name has not released -- was hit on the head, knocked to the ground and robbed. While on the ground the victim was stabbed. He was taken to the hospital where his condition is not listed.

Neighbors on the street expressed shock at the attack. "I can't believe it happened right in front of my house -- my kids my safety. I went for a walk by myself at 9:30 last night. It could have happened to me. It could have happened to anyone around here," said Crystal Hall.

"It makes me pretty nervous. I haven't wanted to be home really all day so I've been avoiding it at all costs. It's kind of scary to think something that bad can happen right in your front yard," said Trisha Hlastawa.

Police say there were two attackers.  One is described as a white male, in his teens or early 20s, 5'6" - 5'7", 130-140 lbs, dark clothes, wearing a dark bandana around his head under a dark flat, wide brimmed, baseball style hat.  Anyone with information is asked to call police.
