TROY, N.Y. - Late Saturday evening, Troy Police responded to the scene of a large fight, where they found a man who had been stabbed in the back of the neck with a screw-driver.
Several people were still in the area, including the stabbing victim, a 26-year-old man named Francis Smith, who opened communication with the police by saying "they tried to kill me," subsequently revealing the stab wound and small screw-driver still protruding from the back of his neck.
Smith was immobilized and kept still until Troy Fire Department Medics arrived. He was then transported to Albany Medical Department and is in stable condition where it is expected that his injuries are non-life threatening.
Smith was with his wife and brother in the area of Congress and Third when an argument erupted between himself and two unknown men, police say.
One suspect is a hispanic male with a pony-tail, who is under six feet tall and the second suspect is a black male with no further description.
The two men allegedly fled the stabbing on foot.
No arrests have been made and Troy Detectives have been assigned to the case.
