ATLANTIC CITY — Police on Wednesday asked for the public’s help finding a city man after he allegedly stabbed another man who tried to break up a domestic dispute.

At 9:10 p.m., officers responded to New York and Pacific avenues for a report of a man stabbed with a large knife, police said in a news release. Officer Justin Peyton found a 53-year-old man, who was not identified, with severe injuries.

After Peyton used a makeshift tourniquet on the man’s arm, he was taken to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, City Campus.
