Man stabbed by ice pick walks into fire station for help
PROVIDENCE – A 30-year-old man was stabbed early this morning in the face, neck and chest with an ice pick.
The man walked into the Broad Street fire station, located at 847 Broad St., seeking help at 1:51 a.m. and was taken to Rhode Island Hospital, according to James Taylor, chief of communications for the Providence Fire Department.
The man’s name and condition are not available at this time.
Eight firefighters, all certified as emergency medical technicians, were in the station in the Elmwood neighborhood when the man came in looking for help, Taylor said. It’s not unusual, he said, for someone with injuries who is near a fire station to seek help there.
