Around 5:22 p.m., Ithaca police were called to the 100 block of Chestnut Street for a fight reportedly involving guns and knives. (Police have not confirmed that these weapons were involved in the incident.)

When police arrived, they found a male victim bleeding from the head and face. He had several small lacerations to the hands and arms as well.

Police determined that the man had been struck by a glass bottle “and may have been stabbed in the arms and hands,” police said.

“The male victim stated that he was assaulted by several other males who left the area in an unknown direction prior to police arrival. The victim was not able to provide any other information to police on scene,” a statement from Ithaca police said.

Police Chief John Barber said he did not think the man’s injuries were life-threatening. The victim was taken to a regional trauma center, IPD said.

Police are asking anyone with knowledge of the crime to call them at 607-272-3245.
