MILTON - Police are determining whether to file charges in connection with a stabbing in town Tuesday morning, according to police Chief Mark McGowan.

Police responded to 559 White Mountain Highway around 8:30 a.m. after a man in his mid-20s was stabbed several times by a person he knew but is not related to, McGowan said.

While McGowan did not explain where the man was stabbed or the potential reasons behind the incident, he said the man sustained non-life-threatening injuries. He added police are familiar with the home, but he would not elaborate.

The identities of those involved have not been released at this time, McGowan said.

Firefighters responded around 8:45 a.m. but waited until police secured the scene before transporting the man to Frisbie Memorial Hospital in Rochester, said assistant Fire Chief Devon Pageau.

As part of the ongoing investigation, McGowan said police interviewed several people, but no one has been taken into custody and no charges have been filed in the matter. He added while the man is expected to recover, the severity of the charges is connected to the extent of his injuries.
