STAMFORD — Police detectives are working to find the person responsible for killing a man on Frederick Street on Wednesday night while a suspect is being questioned by police.

Police said their investigation was hampered by a language barrier with all residents of the housing unit, and with a “high level of intoxication,” Conklin added.

Police were dispatched to Frederick Street and Cove Road at 9:54 p.m. Wednesday on the report of a man who had been stabbed and had collapsed.

Police and EMS immediately offered aid and the man was transported to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead, Conklin said.

Conklin said there was a trail of blood from where the man was stabbed and where he collapsed. The Fire Department was called to wash away the blood on the street and sidewalk.

The Stamford Fire Department was also called to the area to wash down the sidewalk due to the heavy amount of blood, Conklin said.

The 54-year-old man was pronounced dead at Stamford Hospital, said Sgt. Sean Boeger, who would not get into the specifics of the case, but said the death will be ruled a homicide.

Currently, a person of interest in the case is being held on two outstanding warrants and is being questioned.

“For the sake of the integrity of the case, I cannot answer specific questions, but we will at a later date,” Boeger said.

“We have a person we are speaking to,” Boeger said. “The patrol division and major crimes unit have been working on this case since last evening and we are continuing to work on it at the present time.”

The death marks the second homicide in Stamford this year. On March 30, Stephon Walthrust of Queens was shot and killed in Stamford’s South End.

Police say they are questioning a person of interest in connection with a fatal stabbing at a Stamford home.

Police say a Hispanic man in his 50s was stabbed in the stomach at a multifamily home at 107 Frederick St. around 10 p.m. Wednesday.

According to police, the man was stabbed inside of the home then ran outside where he collapsed at the corner of Frederick and Cove streets.

Police say the person in custody for questioning had two outstanding failure to appear warrants from prior assaults in Stamford.

Police have not said whether the victim and the person of interest lived in the same multifamily home.
