Ithaca (WSYR-TV) - Hundreds of people were in the area where a man was stabbed early Sunday morning, but many of them could not help Ithaca police nail down a description of the attacker.

Police were called to the 300 block of Hillview Place around 12:46 a.m., when they found the man with a stab wound in the abdomen.

The victim told officers that he didn't know who stabbed him and it appears the potential witnesses nearby offered few clues.

Investigators did narrow the focus to a grey or light blue Chrysler 300 sedan. They're hoping the detail will spark someone's memory or lead to a break in the case.

Anyone with information can call Ithaca Police Department's Crime Stoppers Tipline at 607-697-0333.
