A Northfield man was stabbed Sunday afternoon, when he confronted two men who were reportedly stealing tools from his truck, parked on the street near his house on Cedarbridge Road.

Northfield Police say they responded to a call from Shore Memorial Hospital about a stabbing victim. The victim was then transferred to the Trauma Unit at AtanticCare Medical Center.

Police interviewed the victim, who said he "observed two white males wearing black hoodies stealing tools from the back of his truck which was parked in the street directly in front of his residence. The victim confronted the suspects. One of the suspects immediately fled while the other spun around and slashed the victim with a knife. The victim sustained a severe laceration to his abdomen. The second suspect then entered an older gray Ford Taurus with the first suspect and left the scene taking the stolen tools with them."

Police are asking that if you have information on the incident, please call police at (609)641-2832 extension 147.
