The man who stabbed a passerby on the 600 block of State Street a little before 9:30 p.m. Tuesday night and fled is still at large, Madison police say.

The suspect, who has been described as a tall male with long brown hair, stabbed the 27-year-old victim several times after the victim refused to give him money. The victim was hospitalized with non life-threatening injuries.

“An officer on scene applied a tourniquet to the victim until Fire Rescue arrived on scene,” said Galen Wiering, a Madison Police Department spokesperson. “The suspect then fled the scene and was not located.”

Several police cars arrived on the scene, and parts of the sidewalk were closed while officers conducted interviews with witnesses in the area. According to the police report, the investigation is still underway.
