PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Police in Providence are investigating the city’s tenth homicide of the year.

A 52-year-old man was stabbed at about 10:30 a.m. Tuesday on Chalkstone Avenue in the area of Rowan Street, according to police.

The victim, who has not yet been identified, was taken to the hospital, where he later died.

Police said no arrests have been made but the investigation remains active.

Tuesday’s homicide case is the third opened by Providence police in less than a week after a mother of four was found dead inside her Ontario Street home on Friday and a man was stabbed to death on Admiral Street later that night.
