ORIGINAL STORY

A 26-year-old Halifax man is listed in critical condition at Duke University Medical Center following a stabbing incident that occurred just before midnight Saturday, according to South Boston Police.

Investigator C. L. Carswell said officers were called to Westside Village Apartments at 11:58 p.m. for a report of a stabbing.

When they arrived, the officers found Christopher Polk with a knife wound to the head lying near a walkway at the apartment complex, Carswell said.

EMS personnel transported Polk to Halifax Regional Hospital, and he was later airlifted to Duke Medical Center, where he was reported in critical condition Sunday afternoon, the investigator said.
