Intoxicated man stabbed north of Downtown can’t explain what happened, police say

An intoxicated man was hospitalized after being stabbed early Thursday morning, but he wasn’t able to give police much info about what happened, according to authorities.

Police said they found the man outside around 1:10 a.m. on Pacific Avenue near 10th Street. He had cuts to his upper body, but the wounds weren’t life-threatening, Sgt. Vincent Otto said.

Medics took the man to a local hospital, but he couldn’t give officers any details on where he was stabbed or who may have attacked him, Otto said.

Police are still investigating.
