Spokane police are looking for an attacker after a stabbing at the south end of the Monroe Street Bridge on Tuesday afternoon.

The victim, whose name was not released, was transported to a local hospital with serious injuries, Spokane Police Department spokeswoman Julie Humphreys said. Witnesses called in the report of the attack around 2:30 p.m., she said.

Spokane police officers blocked off the right lane of southbound Monroe Street Bridge and closed the sidewalk on that side of the bridge as they investigated.

Anyone who has information that might help police locate the attacker is urged to contact Crime Check at (509) 456-2233, Humphreys said.
