A man was hospitalized with a life-threatening stab wound and his assailant was being sought following a fight Sunday afternoon outside an Englewood church.

Officers who responded to at Mt. Cavalry Baptist Church on West Demarest Avenue applied a tourniquet before an ambulance took the victim, 31, to Hackensack University Medical Center shortly before 3 p.m., Deputy Police Chief Gregory Halstead said.

The victim may have been attending a social event when a fight broke out and he was stabbed, Halstead said.

His assailant remained at large and may have fled the scene in a dark-colored vehicle. Witnesses described him as short, Hispanic and dressed in black.

Halstead asked anyone who might have witnessed the stabbing or has information that can help capture the man responsible to contact the CrimeStoppers group (Bergenfield, Bogota, Englewood, Teaneck & Hackensack).
