A 22-year-old man is recovering at Stamford Hospital after he was allegedly hacked and left naked on the side of the road Friday.
Police say the man was wearing only a garbage bag and covered in blood when he was dropped off at Stamford Police Headquarters at around 3:30 a.m. by a cab driver.
Police say the driver found the man lying in the street near the Stamford train station, where he was apparently robbed, stabbed and stripped of his clothing.
Officers say they have found surveillance video of the victim banging on the windows of a nearby car wash, apparently looking for help.
Police tell News 12 the man had gotten into an argument with four other men he had been drinking with when things escalated.
The victim told Stamford police that the knife used was a machete. The victim told police the men laid him down and went to "chop his head off," when he moved and they got his shoulder instead.
Police say they're not yet releasing surveillance video from the car wash. They say they believe it was an isolated incident.
