Police: Stamford man stabbed in buttocks over game of chess

STAMFORD — An argument over a chess game resulted in one man being stabbed in the buttocks, but no arrests have been made in the case, police said.

Sgt. Kenneth Jarrett said police were called to an apartment on Mohawk Court on the report of an assault after 5 a.m. Saturday.

The 51-year-old victim said he knew only the first name of the man who stabbed him, and refused to give police any more information.

“Nobody wanted to say anything,” Jarrett said. “They were playing chess. they got into a small argument and somehow the victim got stabbed in the butt.”

Jarrett said the owner of the apartment called 911 to report that a friend had been stabbed.
