The Oneida City Police are actively investigating a stabbing that has left one man dead.  Eyewitness News reporter Nicole Todd joins us now with the details on this developing story.

According to Oneida police a fight broke out Sunday evening in the area of Lexington Ave and Pearl Street. 

Upon their arrival, officers discovered a man with stab wounds. 35 year old Francis Borasky—was taken to Oneida Health Care, where he later died from his injuries.

Oneida police say this is a very active investigation. They are searching for two teenagers as persons of interest, not suspects.  No arrests have been made.  While on the scene this morning, the police tape was taken down and residents were moving about in the home.

“We know who they are.  They know who they are and they need to come in and we need to talk to them.  They need to turn themselves in.  Whether their parents, guardians, friends, grandparents; somebody needs to talk some logical sense into these young men and get them to come in and turn themselves in.  And if we find somebody that is harboring these young men, we will prosecute them.  I want that made crystal clear.”

The Oneida Police are asking for your help regarding this incident.
