Carthage police investigate stabbing

CARTHAGE, Mo. — Carthage police and other law enforcement officials are searching for two men after a stabbing in the 500 block of North Main Street on Thursday.

A 31-year-old man told police he was walking in the area shortly after 6 p.m. when two men walked up to him and one stabbed him in the abdomen. Police described the injury as a small cut. The victim was taken by ambulance to a hospital, where he was treated and released.

The two men fled on foot, police said, and the only description the victim could provide was that one of them was wearing a flannel shirt.
