Investigators are attempting to discover the motive behind a seemingly random attack of violence outside Norwalk Hospital over the weekend.
According to Norwalk police dispatch recordings, the victim was a man who was there to pick up his wife after she was discharged from the maternity unit.
According to Sgt. Sofia Gulino, the victim, who has not been named, was going back and forth between his car and the hospital entrance with personal affects just before he was stabbed by an unknown assailant.
“When he returned to the vehicle, he was rushed by an unknown individual and stabbed a couple of times,” she said.
The hospital staff called 911 at 10:42 a.m. Saturday and the victim was taken inside to be treated.
Police say the suspect fled the scene, running toward Woodbury Avenue. His image was captured on a surveillance video.
The victim was transferred to the emergency room with serious injuries. He is expected to recover.
Sgt. Gulino says police have no motive thus far.
“We are asking for the community's help in trying to understand what was behind it and who was behind it,” she says.
Norwalk Hospital's parent company, Nuvance Health, released a statement: 

“We have been advised that this was a random act of violence which could have occurred anywhere. Our Security team took immediate action as did Norwalk Police-for which we are very grateful for their assistance. Our primary concern is for the victim and his family. As this is an active investigation, we won’t be commenting further.”
