UPDATED: Thu., Oct. 29, 2020

A man was stabbed Thursday morning at a home near Underhill Park. Police are looking for the suspect.

Just before 7:30 a.m., the Spokane Police Department received reports of a stabbing at a home on the 3100 block of East Fifth Avenue, according to a police department statement. 

When officers arrived, they found a man with a stab wound to the abdomen. The suspect had run away, according to SPD. 

The victim and a witness know the suspect, according to initial information from investigators. The witness lives at the residence and told police she had recently been harassed by the suspect. 

The male victim was taken to a nearby hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries, according to police. 

The investigation is ongoing and police say they are attempting to locate the suspect.
