Springfield Police Division officers were sent to Springfield Regional Medical Center on a report of a man who was stabbed in the stomach at about 6 a.m. Friday morning.

The man told police he was playing poker at a friends house near North Light Street and Cedar Street, but decided to walk to his home in the Northridge area because he was drunk and didn’t want to play anymore, the report said.

After about 10 minutes, the man told police he was approached by a black male who stabbed him. The victim later told police the man demanded money before he stabbed him and he tried to walk away. However, the man was persistent and eventually lunged at the victim with an unknown sharp object, the report said.

The victim had a small, half-inch puncture wound in his left stomach area, the report said.

No charges are being filed due to a lack of suspect information.
