Man, 22, stabbed to death in Kensington

A 22-year-old man died Monday afternoon after police say he was stabbed several times on a block in the heart of Kensington.

The victim, who has not yet been identified, was found by SEPTA police on Somerset Street near Kensington Avenue at 1:16 p.m. after a pedestrian alerted them that someone had been injured. When SEPTA officers found him, the man was suffering from several stab wounds to his neck, chest, right shoulder and right arm, police said. He was taken to Temple University Hospital by SEPTA police and pronounced dead there at 1:37 p.m.

Police said no arrests in the stabbing have been made, but that they were looking for three men -- one of whom was armed with a machete -- seen leaving the scene in a gold BMW.
