The Amsterdam Police Department is investigating a stabbing that happened this morning.

According to police, the stabbing took place at 4:15 a.m. on Wesleyan Avenue near the intersection with Chapel Place.

Police said the victim as a passenger in a vehicle occupied by three other people. A verbal argument broke out between the victim and one of the other passengers.
