RICHMOND, Va. — Authorities are asking for the public’s help to identity a man wanted for a violent stabbing attack in Church Hill earlier this week.

Officials said officers were called to the intersection of Tulip and Carrington Streets for a report of a stabbing just after 2:15 a.m. on Tuesday.

“Shortly afterward, an adult male victim arrived at 1st Precinct suffering from multiple stab wounds,” Koury Wilson, a Richmond Police spokesperson, said. “He was transported to a local hospital where his condition remains life-threatening.”

The suspect is described as a black male with a thin build and dark complexion believed to be in his late twenties to early thirties.

Police said he has short dark hair and may have a scarred right retina.
