“It is an expanded search for Harris at this point,” Reid said.

Police described Harris as a black male of light complexion, about 5-feet-7, and weighing 140 pounds. He is considered a danger to the public, police said.

When officers arrived at the stabbing scene, they found the victim behaving erratically and covered in blood, according to police. Authorities did not identify the man.

The victim was transported by the Fire and Rescue Department to Falmouth Hospital, and subsequently transferred to a Boston-area hospital with serious injuries, police said.

Falmouth police encourage anyone with knowledge of Harris’ whereabouts to contact them at 508-457-2526.
