LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Lafayette Police are investigating a Friday morning stabbing near Columbian Park.

Police were called to an apartment near the intersection of South Street and South 26th Street just before 1 a.m. Friday. The apartment is two blocks away from Columbian Park. 

A caller told dispatchers a man had been stabbed. When police arrived, the victim was alert and talking. 

Police described what happened as an "altercation among acquaintances," and said witnesses weren't exactly cooperative with officers. The victim was stabbed once in the abdomen and he was conscious when he was taken to the hospital.

LPD is working on getting more information including a suspect description. 

This investigation is ongoing and anybody with information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact the Lafayette Police Department (807-1200) or the We-Tip Hotline (800-78-CRIME).
