Police have released a surveillance photo of a suspect wanted in connection with the stabbing of a man found lying in a pool of blood early Wednesday in Valley Stream.
The suspect, a man believed to be between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-10, is seen wearing a blue-and-white shirt, gray jeans and a dark-colored baseball hat emblazoned with the words New York.
Nassau County police said he is wanted in connection with a stabbing that left a 25-year-old victim hospitalized in serious but stable condition. The victim, who police said was wounded in the head, neck, arms and chest, was found by a Fifth Precinct officer near the intersection of West Merrick Road and South Franklin Avenue Wednesday at about 3:30 a.m.
Police initially believed two men were responsible for the assault, in which broken bottles were used to attack the victim. Police now say they believe the suspect in the surveillance photo released Friday was the lone attacker.
Detectives are asking anyone with information regarding the incident to call Crime Stoppers at 800-244-8477.
All calls will remain confidential.
