A 20-year-old man was taken by friends to Lawrence Memorial Hospital late Saturday night after a stabbing incident outside an Ohio Street residence.

Lawrence Police Sgt. Ted Bordman said the victim, a KU student, was in the 1300 block of Ohio Street just after 11 p.m. attending a party in the area. He became involved in an altercation with another person who proceeded to attack him with a knife.

Bordman said the student sustained a non-life-threatening laceration to his arm.

Witnesses described the suspect as being dressed in a 'Joe Dirt'-style costume. The suspect was wearing a long mullet-style wig with painted-on facial hair. He was also said to be wearing a long-sleeve red flannel shirt. The suspect was last seen heading north from the location on Ohio.

A nursing supervisor at Lawrence Memorial Hospital confirmed Monday evening the victim had been treated and released.

As of Monday evening, the suspect had not yet been apprehended.

If you'll read more closely, vavs, Joe Dirt did the stabbing. Maybe that bonk on the head brought out his dark side.

it was would help if i could read--we'll blame it on DST.

:) Joe Dirt was a happy guy---he didnt need to stab anyone, obviously this guy was NOT fully in character.

"Life's a garden...Dig it" not stab it.

Why was this man carrying a knife? From this description I doubt that he will be caught. Unless he stabs someone else. Some people get drunk and change personalities dramatically. For the worse.

Good thing Joe Dirt's buddy wasn't around. He might have gotten stabbed inthe face with a saldering iron.
