Man stabbed to death in upscale Philadelphia park
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Police say a man was stabbed to death in a park in an upscale Philadelphia neighborhood.
Officers responded to Rittenhouse Square for a report of a person screaming Thursday night. They found a 51-year-old man bleeding from multiple stab wounds to his back.
Authorities say the man refused medical assistance but was ultimately taken to a hospital where he died.
Police say the man was involved with a fight with a group of men near the park’s entrance.
The group was gone before officers arrived.
No arrests have been made. The investigation is ongoing.
A 37-year-old real estate developer was stabbed to death last year near the same park. A jury last month found a 22-year-old bicycle deliveryman not guilty of voluntary manslaughter.
