FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - Fargo Police are searching for a person of interest after a stabbing in south Fargo.

Police said a 24-year-old man called 911 after he was stabbed in the stomach around 5:00 a.m. on Friday, May 6. It happened in the area of 25th Street and Demores Drive, which is just south of 13th Avenue.

Officials are looking for a white man in his mid-to-late 20s with long dark hair. They said this man was believed to be walking with the victim earlier in the morning. The suspect was wearing a red shirt, dark pants and a yellow and black head covering. Fargo Police ask the public to call them if they see someone matching this description.

When Valley News Live reporters arrived on scene, police were using a loud speaker to tell someone to surrender. Officials spent two hours canvasing the area looking for the person of interest. A K-9 unit was brought in to attempt to track them down. Parts of 25th St. S. were blocked while officers investigated.

The victim was conscious when police arrived, but he was taken to a local hospital with a deep cut to his abdomen.
