EUGENE, Ore -- Eugene Police Department is looking for one or possibly two people connected to a stabbing that sent one man to the hospital.

Officers responded to a stabbing call around 10:30 p.m. Monday night at 198 Highway 99 N, near the Ivy Mini Mart in Eugene.

Police said, a man was stabbed twice in the upper arm and left side. He was transported to Riverbend Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

An area search was conducted for the suspect(s), but they had fled prior to officers arriving on the scene.

Lt. Jennifer Bills said the stabbing stemmed from a dispute between the subjects and the public was not at risk.

"We respond all over the city. This area certainly has its fair share of bars and drinking establishments. I don't know if this is an alcohol related event yet. Like I said, it's still an ongoing investigation but we can say that the public is not at risk. It really was involving subjects that knew each other or had a dispute that just recently started," said Bills.

Police said they are not releasing the victim's name or age until family members are notified.

Police said they are still investigating what exactly led up with to the stabbing.
