Man sleeps for 10 hours with knife in his back

Posted: Updated:

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say a New Jersey man awoke after a long night's sleep to discover a knife stuck in his back.

Police in Trenton say the 42-year-old man didn't know why his back was hurting when he got up Sunday so he had his brother take a look. The brother saw a knife protruding from the middle of his back.

Police did not identify the man. They say he had gotten into a fistfight on his porch after a night of drinking and apparently didn't realize he had been stabbed.

Police tell The Times of Trenton the man was uncooperative when detectives tried to talk to him at the hospital. He was expected to be released as early as Monday.

Anyone with information on the case should call police at (609) 989-4170, or the Confidential Tip Line at (609) 989-3663.
