Police say the victim was found at about 9:40 p.m. suffering from a stab wound, and upon their arrival, told officers he had been stabbed in the area of North Second and Spring Garden streets in Easton by someone he was familiar with.
However, Easton police were unable to locate crime scene, they said, and have added the victim is refusing to cooperate with their investigation.
