Evansville Police are investigating a Friday night stabbing incident.

Police say they were called to the 3100 Block of Woodview Court around 9:30 p.m. for an assault in progress.

Authorities say dispatch was told a man had been stabbed and was on his way to an area hospital.

We're told officers went the hospital to speak with the victim while other officers arrived at Woodview Court.

EPD says the victim told officers he was helping a friend clean out her truck in the parking lot of the complex when the suspect showed up and jumped in the back seat of the truck with him. Authorities say both the suspect and victim began to fight.

Authorities say after the fight was over, the suspect jumped in his vehicle and left the scene.

EPD says the victim rested by a stairwell at the apartment complex when he realized he was bleeding heavily. He didn't know it while the fight was in progress, but he had been stabbed.

We're told after feeling very weak, from the stab wound, the victim was taken to the hospital by his friend.

Police say he is in stable condition at this time.
