KU Police are investigating after a 20-year-old man was stabbed by an acquaintance around 2:30 this morning.

Police were called to Oliver Hall, 1815 Naismith Drive, by a Resident Assistant who reported a man with a stab wound. Officers located the male victim in the lobby of the building and learned that the male suspect had fled from the building on foot.

Medics reported the victim's injuries to be serious, with a single stab wound to the abdomen just above the "belt line." The wound was reportedly inflicted with a butter knife.

Officers currently only have a very vague suspect description but, it sounds like the two men know each other and the victim may not be a KU student.

Medics have transported the victim to Lawrence Memorial Hospital for treatment.

Check back with this blog and later this morning with the Lawrence Journal-World for more information from Police.
