Police are investigating an early-morning stabbing near a train station in Bucks County.

Officers were initially called around 2:45 a.m. for a report of a pedestrian struck near the station, which is located at S. Clinton Avenue and Bridge Street. When they arrived, the man believed to be in his late 60s or 70s was unconscious.

After he was transported to the hospital it was discovered that the victim had been stabbed multiple times, police said. He was flown to Temple University Hospital in critical condition and was undergoing surgery Wednesday morning.
