On Sunday, June 14, 2020, at approximately 10:00 PM, a 34-year-old male victim and a 31-year-old female victim were at home in the 100 block of Essex Street. At this time the 34-year-old male answered the door and allowed the two suspects, which he knew, into the residence.

Once the two suspects entered the residence they began to assault the male. The female came down to see what was going on at which point one of the suspects allegedly pointed a large knife at her and threatened her to stay away. During the struggle the male victim was stabbed several times. Ultimately the two suspects left the residence after taking property from the home.
