A stabbing sent one man to a Spokane hospital Tuesday night and left police searching for the culprit.

Police were called to North Monroe Street and West Augusta Avenue about 8:30 p.m., where a man was transported to the hospital in unknown condition, said Officer Matt Rose.

No suspect has been identified, and the major crimes unit is investigating.

Police think the stabbing occurred outside, Rose said.
