    Dozens of police officers converged on a shopping center in New Rochelle after a stabbing in a parking garage, police say.

    Authorities were staying tight-lipped about the incident at Palmer Square Shopping Center Saturday night, but on Sunday said one victim in stable condition with lacerations to his head, chest and arms. 

    A black bag was seen surrounded by police tape and guarded by officers in the parking garage of Marshalls & Homegoods on Petersville Road. More police tape cordoned off a darkened stairwell.

    Shoppers said they’ve tried to avoid the stairwell because of a lack of light.

    “The area has lost tenants and because of that this is really the only place, so if you park downstairs and then have to walk up, then there should be either a camera or lighting, better lighting,” Susan Chase said.

    Marie Lansen said she was frightened by reports of a stabbing at the shopping center.

    “We always go here with the kids, and that’s scary,” Lansen said.

    No arrests have been made, and authorities said Sunday there are no suspects.
