Officers were dispatched to West Sixth Street and Monterey Way just after 2:20 a.m. on a reported stabbing.
On arrival officers found the victim had been punched several times in the face and stabbed once in the upper chest during what is believed to be an attempted robbery. It is unclear if the suspects took anything from the victim.
According to radio traffic, the suspects were occupants in a black vehicle with tinted windows, possibly a Chevrolet Monte Carlo. The victim believes there were two black male suspects. Both suspects reportedly fled in the black vehicle, which was last seen westbound on Sixth Street.
Medics transported the victim to Lawrence Memorial Hospital with serious injuries.
No other information has been released.
