A man suffered multiple stab wounds in a fight Saturday night in Mountain View, according the Anchorage Police Department.

Around 7:15 p.m., a woman called police after a man reported being stabbed on Peterkin Street. Police identified the victim as 32-year-old Michael Edward Bussey and the caller told police that the victim was going in and out of consciousness. As of Sunday afternoon, he was listed in stable condition after suffering multiple stab wounds to his torso.

“Officers followed a blood trail through Mt. View to try to determine where the assault took place,” said Anita Shell, APD spokesperson in a Sunday news release. “While doing so, APD Dispatch received a call from a 59 year-old man who claimed that he had just stabbed Bussey following an altercation at his apartment complex located at the 200 block of North Klevin.”

Due to Bussey’s medical condition, police have yet to speak with the victim to figure out what exactly happened at the apartment. No charges have been made as of Sunday afternoon.

“Witnesses are very sparse right now and don't have much information,” said Sgt. Shaun Henry, at the crime scene on Saturday evening. “The person that was stabbed; he's got non-life threatening wounds as of now, but doesn't have a lot of information to give us as to what really happened.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 786-8900.
