A man who was rushed to the hospital with stabs wounds told police he never saw his attacker, authorities said.
Police on the scene Friday evening searched the lot of Race Wash and apartments above neighboring Catoddy’s Thrift store looking for evidence of the stabbing, which reportedly occurred around 6:30 p.m. near Harry and Washington. The 27-year-old victim told officers he was approached from behind while he was walking near Race Wash — a car wash in the 900 block of E. Harry — and was stabbed by a man who then fled, Wichita police Sgt. Bob Gulliver said.
The 27-year-old, who was visiting someone at an apartment, called 911 to report the incident, Gulliver said. Police do not know what motivated the attack or whether any of the man’s property was stolen. Police also do not have a suspect description, Gulliver said.
The man sustained critical injuries. He was taken to Via Christi Hospital on St. Francis for treatment, according to a Sedgwick County dispatch supervisor.
