The Amsterdam Police Department is searching for a man who is believed to be involved in a stabbing incident from Thursday morning.

According to a news release from the department, the stabbing occurred on Wesleyan Avenue in the city of Amsterdam near the intersection of Chapel Place at around 4:15 a.m.

After being treated for multiple stab wounds at St. Mary's Hospital, the stabbing victim was transferred to Albany Medical Center where he was undergoing emergency surgery for his injuries later that morning.

No condition update was available from the hospital, as the victim's name is not being released.

The victim was a passenger in a vehicle that was occupied by three other individuals, the release detailed, when a verbal argument began between the victim and one of the other passengers.

The escalated argument ended up outside o the vehicle where the victim and the alleged suspect engaged in a physical altercation, police said.

When the victim returned to the vehicle, he advised the other occupants that he had been stabbed by the alleged suspect.

He was transported to the hospital form there.

Amsterdam detectives are now attempting to locate the stabbing suspect, and collecting evidence and interviews from witnesses as well.

As of Thursday evening, the suspect remained at large.

Amsterdam Police Det. Lt. Kurt Conroy said around 5:30 p.m. Thursday that the victim was out of surgery.

"The victim is in stable condition at Albany Medical Center but is still not conscious," he said.

No information has been released as to the motive of the stabbing.
