A man sustained life-threatening injuries, but was expected to recover, after he was stabbed near Plaza Square Park in the Old Towne area of Orange on Monday, Dec. 17.

Dispatchers received a 911 call at 8:36 p.m. reporting an unspecified incident near the intersection of West Chapman Avenue and Glassell Street, according to Orange Police Lt. Fred Lopez. He said responding officers found a 27-year-old man bleeding in the street. The victim was transported to a nearby hospital.

Medical staff determined that the man had suffered life-threatening stab wounds to his chest, but the victim was expected to survive his injuries, according to Lopez. He said it was unclear what was used to stab the man, and officers had not recovered a weapon from the scene as of 11 p.m. Monday.
