20-Year-Old Norwalk Man Arrested for Stabbing: Police

A 20-year-old Norwalk man was arrested on Wednesday morning for allegedly stabbing another man, police said. 

Police were responded to a disturbance on Main Avenue at 10:10 a.m. and found a man suffering from a stab wound. 

The suspect, Plinio Chavez, had left the scene on foot prior to police getting there, officials said. 

Police located Chavez in a wooded area on Linden Terrace and took him into custody. 

The stabbing is under investigation but police said the incident escalated due to prior issues between the men.

Chavez is accused of first-degree assault and carrying a dangerous weapon. His bond was set at $20,000 and he's expected to appear in court on June 17.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call (203) 854-3111.
