Police are searching for the suspect in a serious assault in Bristol that sent the victim to the hospital Wednesday morning.
Officers responded to a report of an assault with a knife at a residence on Columbus Boulevard, near Route 6, at 8:49 a.m. Wednesday and said a male suspect ran from the home before officers arrived.
Because of that, Stafford School and Bristol Eastern High School were placed in a lockdown as a precaution.
Once police determined there was no longer a threat in the immediate area, the lockdown was lifted.
The suspect is still at-large, police said.
The victim’s injuries are believed to be life-threatening.
