DENNIS TOWNSHIP — State police are investigating a stabbing at a Ravenwood Drive home overnight Wednesday. 

Troopers received a 911 hangup call about 4:11 a.m., said Lt. Ted Schafer.

When troopers and Belleplain emergency medical services arrived, they found Fred Boyle, 49, stabbed in the back, Schafer said. He was taken by helicopter to the AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center Atlantic City campus with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries, authorities said. 

It is unknown at this time if Boyle lived at the home, Schafer said. Several other people were also at the home. They were not identified. 

Schafer said police are investigating and that more information would be released later Wednesday morning.
