The stabbing was reported at 8:20 p.m. in the first block of Hanover Street.
A man was stabbed in the side Saturday night in Phillipsburg, according to emergency radio reports.
The dispatches said the stabbing occurred about 8:20 p.m. in the first block of Hanover Street.
The man said he was stabbed by a neighbor, according to the dispatches. A freelance photographer at the scene said the victim was laying flat on his back on the front porch and appeared alert.
The report indicated the man was taken by helicopter to an area hospital.
Police at the scene declined to comment on the situation. Prosecutor Richard Burke also did not immediately return a call for comment Sunday.
A man in the neighborhood Sunday morning said he was unaware of the stabbing and a woman walking to her car declined comment.
“I’m not saying nothing,” she said.
The stabbing was at the scene of a prior dispute in the same neighborhood.
In September 2013, Adam Rodriguez, 21, who lived on Reese Court — running parallel to Hanover Street — assaulted a neighbor and was arrested for simple assault, police had said.
