FAIRFIELD — Police said someone tried to stab a man Sunday with an ice pick but missed.
Sgt. Jeff Osgood said there apparently was an altercation between two people near a shopping center on the 2100 block of Cadenasso Drive and one man tried to stab the other with an ice pick.
The suspect was described as a Hispanic male with small build, Osgood said.
When police responded, they saw a man matching the description flee toward the Ledgewood Creek area before officers could set up a perimeter, Osgood said. The suspect, possibly a transient, got away, Osgood said.
The victim had no injuries.
