Residents returned to their homes in one San Mateo neighborhood Friday evening after a search for a potentially armed suspect came up empty.

Police sealed off part of Echo Avenue near Norfolk Street for more than two hours on Friday night.

The trouble started when a man suffered what appeared to be a stabbing or a slashing wound to his hand around 6:30 p.m.

Officers searched a home, but did not find the suspect.
