Concord police are investigating a stabbing that is believed to have occurred in a vehicle in the city’s north end Monday.

Police responded to multiple reports of an injured man in the area of Bouton and North State streets about 12:16 p.m., according to Concord police Lt. Sean Ford. The victim either fled from the attack or was pushed out of a white pickup truck, Ford said.

The victim was transported to Concord Hospital for injuries that were not deemed life-threatening. Ford declined to release the name of the victim but said he was a local man known to police.

The vehicle in question was found about 1:30 p.m., but police were still looking for a suspect Monday. The stabbing is not believed to be a random act, but Ford declined to comment further, citing an active investigation.

There is no public safety threat at this time, Ford said. Authorities are asking anyone with information on the incident to contact police at 225-8600 or the Concord Regional Crimeline at 226-3100.
