A man who walked to Via Christi Hospital on St. Francis early Sunday told police he did so after another man tried to tackle and stab him.

The man reported he was walking on the sidewalk in the 1100 block of North Emporia when he passed another man who was also walking on the sidewalk.

The second man tried to tackle the first and when he stopped the tackle, the assailant pulled out a knife and stabbed him in the left elbow, said Sgt. Bart Brunscheen, spokesman for the Wichita Police Department.

Officers were unable to find the assailant. The victim was treated at St. Francis and released.
