ANCHORAGE -

Anchorage police are investigating a fight near Bean’s Cafe early Thursday, during which one of the men involved was stabbed in the back and suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

According to an APD statement on the case, police were called at 12:20 a.m. to the vicinity of 3rd Avenue’s intersection with Karluk Street by reports of a disturbance involving several people.

“It was reported to police that a man and woman were engaged in a physical altercation when another man intervened and stabbed the male victim in the lower back with a knife,” police wrote.

APD spokesperson Dani Myren says police believe the incident, which ultimately saw the victim taken to a local hospital, began as a simple argument.

“It was a dispute over money,” Myren said. “It wasn’t a large amount.”

Another APD spokesperson, Anita Shell, says the suspect wasn’t the only attacker in the incident.

“The (stabbed) man was punching the woman in the face,” Shell said.

Police haven’t yet located the suspect. Shell and Myren say no description of the man is available Thursday.
