The Jamestown Police Department is seeking information after a 23-year-old man was killed in a stabbing incident that took place late Monday.

Police were called to North Main Street, between East Fourth and East Fifth streets in Jamestown, around 10:15 p.m. A man, who was found to have been stabbed as he walked on the sidewalk on North Main, was rushed to UPMC Chautauqua where he was pronounced dead.

The suspect is believed to be a man in his 20s.

“The incident is not believed to be a random act and may have been the result of a prior dispute between the victim and a third party,” Jamestown police said in a news release early Tuesday.

The name of the victim was not immediately released. Capt. Robert Samuelson of the Jamestown Police Department said more information will be released later Tuesday.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Jamestown Police Department at 483-7537 or leave an anonymous tip at 483-TIPS or the Tips 411 App. All calls and tips are kept confidential.
