A stranger approached an open garage in northeastern Colorado Springs, started chatting with the resident inside and stabbed him early Tuesday.

The resident sustained serious but not life-threatening injuries, police said.

The victim reportedly was in his garage about 1 a.m. in the 6900 block of Hillock Drive when the man walked up and "engaged him in a conversation," police said. When things turned confrontational, the two fought, and the stranger grabbed a knife and slashed and stabbed the resident multiple times, police said.

The culprit's identity is not known. Anyone with information about the stabbing is asked to call police at 719-444-7000 or leave an anonymous tip with the Pikes Peak Crime Stoppers at 719-634-7867.
