    What happened: Boise Police officers responded to a report of a stabbing at a home on the 1900 block of North 32nd Street early this morning (October 13th) at approximately 1:30 a.m. Several witnesses tell police that two men had arrived at a party that was taking place at the home. One of the men began fighting with the victim, who is an adult male, inside the house. At one point the suspect used a knife to stab him in the shoulder. The fight moved to the front yard before the suspect fled in a vehicle. The victim was transported to a local hospital with what appeared at the scene to be serious injuries. 

    Boise Police detectives are investigating several leads in this case. A motive for the attack is unclear at this time and any relationship between the victim and the suspect is still under investigation.
