Lawrence Police are investigating after a man was found stabbed at Centennial Park early Monday.

Officers were called to the west side of the park, located in the 600 block of Rockledge Road, around 1:30 a.m. on reports of a man injured from a fight.

Lawrence Medics reported the man had been stabbed multiple times and described his injuries as serious. He was transported to Lawrence Memorial Hospital for treatment.

Police spokeswoman Kim Murphree tells Operation 100 News' reporting partners at 6 News Lawrence, a 31-year-old male and a 26-year-old female met officers in the park to report that the man had been attacked. When police arrived they found the victim injured from multiple lacerations.

6 News reports, the couple reported that they were walking from the Hillcrest Shopping Center at 9th and Iowa Streets to the man's home in the 3000 block of West 7th Street when they were approached by man. Little details are known about what was said, but at some point the two men got into a physical fight.

According to the victim, the suspect didn't steal from the couple or threaten them in any way. However, the victim also told police that he and the woman he was with were having a verbal argument as they walked across the Pool Room parking lot toward the park.

Police officers determined that the fight took place near the southwest corner of the park in a grassy area.

The victim was only able to give police a very vague description of an approximately 6ft tall, 200lbs man.

No one has been arrested and police continue to investigate.
