NORTHERN LIBERTIES – Police identified the 56-year-old man killed in Monday’s stabbing as Edward Prescott.

Prescott, of the 6000 block of Charles Street in Wissinoming, was attacked near Seventh and Brown streets shortly before 6 pm. The same suspect allegedly stabbed a 31-year-old Temple law student a block away at Seventh and Fairmount. That victim is still in critical condition, police said.

Investigators said both attacks appear random and the suspect is still on the loose.
