Several males wearing masks attacked a man who was sitting on a Fruit Belt porch in Buffalo early Saturday, leaving the victim with stab wounds to the hand and buttocks, along with a laceration, bleeding and swelling on his face.

The man told Central District Police that he was sitting on an Orange Street porch at about 2:30 a.m., when he was struck with an unknown object. The location is near Virginia Street, between Michigan and Jefferson avenues.

The victim, who told police he could not provide a description of his attackers, was taken to Erie County Medical Center for treatment.
