  • A Leavenworth man is in the hospital after he was stabbed this morning, a police spokesman said.
    Authorities identified a suspect but were still looking for him this afternoon, according to Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department.
    Police learned of the stabbing around 9:30 a.m. today after the 36-year-old victim went to Cushing Memorial Hospital. He reported to officers that he’d been stabbed at a residence in the 700 block of Pottawatomie Street.
    The victim later was transported to another hospital in the Kansas City area, Nicodemus said.
    The deputy chief said the victim was stabbed in the midsection during an altercation with another man. He was stabbed more than once with a knife.
    Someone drove the victim to Cushing Memorial Hospital after the stabbing.
    The victim’s injuries were considered life-threatening. His condition improved over the course of the day but the “injuries are still very serious,” Nicodemus said this afternoon.
    Police processed the crime scene on Pottawatomie Street.
    Nicodemus didn’t provide details regarding what may have led to the altercation between the victim and suspect. The deputy chief said he didn’t want to release too much information before investigators have a chance to speak with the suspect.
    “We’re looking for the suspect,” Nicodemus said.
    The suspect has been identified as a Leavenworth man.
