(ABC 6 News) – Rochester Police responded to a report of an assault just after 10:30 on Friday night at Windsor Court Apartments on 4th Ave SW.

When police arrived on the scene they made contact with a 20-year-old male who appeared to have a stab wound to his mid-section, as he sat outside the building with a towel held to his abdomen.

The victim told police he heard a knock on his apartment door, as well as the voice of his girlfriend’s ex-boyfriend.

When he stepped out into the hallway, he said he felt what he thought was a punch to his abdomen, until he looked down and saw blood.

The male was transported to St. Marys in Rochester for care.
