A Lawrence man suffered nonlife-threatening injuries after he was stabbed at 11:38 p.m. Friday night in the 2400 block of Ousdahl Road.

Lawrence Police Sgt. Michael McLaren said the 22-year-old man was in a verbal argument with a 33-year-old Lawrence woman, with whom he was acquainted.

The woman was armed with a knife, and when the fight turned physical, she cut the man at least twice.

McLaren said the man suffered lacerations to his hand and his hairline. He was then transported by a personal vehicle to Lawrence Memorial Hospital.

Officers were dispatched to the hospital at 12:08 a.m. Saturday after hospital officials notified emergency dispatchers of the situation.

Douglas County Jail reports indicated that no arrests had been made in the incident Saturday night.

Dispatcher: Sir, where were you stabbed? Victim: Uh, I don't know. I guess I was just reading the paper or something and realized I had a fraking knife in me.

That is a very real problem that the people of the UK are starting to worry about. Knife crime is a big deal there. There have been politicians suggesting that permits be required for kitchen knives, and that there is no reason for a legitimate knife to have a point.

Outlawing knives isn't something entirely impossible.
