Man stabbed downtown early Thursday morning

A verbal dispute escalated to physical violence early Thursday morning behind the Salvation Army on West Seventh Avenue.

“I wouldn’t say it was a stabbing,” John Hankemeier, the public information officer coordinator for Eugene Police Department said.

The 36 year old was taken to Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend in Springfield with “multiple, non life-threatening lacerations.”

The reason for the dispute is unknown to the authorities.

Because of the time of the incident — around 2 a.m.— the victim was unable to identify the attacker.
