Man stabbed 9 times at Bronx playground

A man was found stabbed and unconscious at a playground near a Mott Haven school.



Authorities say the victim was found at Lozada Playground. The 50-year-old victim had been stabbed nine times in the head and chest.



The playground is on East 135th Street right next to P.S. 154, the Jonathan D. Hyatt Elementary School. A safety officer says the school was placed on temporary lockdown, but has since returned to normal.



The victim was rushed to Lincoln Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at around 9:30 a.m.



There is no word yet on any arrests.
