DRACUT -- A 28-year-old Dracut man is recovering in the hospital after he was awoken early Sunday morning by a banging on his front door, moments before two men kicked the door in and stabbed him in the chest and abdomen, according to police.

Dracut Police were called to 100 Frederick St., at 4:03 a.m., when a 28-year-old resident of that address called 911 to report he had been stabbed and was already on his way to Lowell General Hospital, according to Deputy Chief David Chartrand.

The 28-year-old suffered what appear to be non life-threatening injuries, according to Chartrand.

The victim told police he was awoken a little before 4 a.m., by the sound of someone banging on his door. As he was walking down the stairs to answer the door, two men kicked the door in and began fighting him on the stairs.

The victim was stabbed twice, once in the chest and once in the abdomen, before fleeing.

The victim was not able to give police a detailed suspect description while he was being treated for his wounds, but police continue to collect evidence and investigate.

Chartand said the motive for the attack remains under investigation, and that police are not yet sure if anything was taken from the victim's apartment.

Anyone with information is asked to call Dracut Police at 978-957-2123.
