KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Authorities in Kansas City are searching for a suspect after three men were stabbed in Midtown early Thursday morning.

The incident happened about 5:17 a.m. in the 3700 block of Broadway Boulevard.

When police arrived they found three men on 38th Street, between Broadway Boulevard and Central Street, who had been stabbed after being in an argument with another man.

Officers say they are searching for a possible fourth victim, possibly a woman.

The three men were taken to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Officers say the men had several cuts on both their arms and their chests.

No arrests have been made.

Police say the suspect fled the scene and is described as a white man wearing all purple and armed with a hunting knife.

Authorities have closed 38th Street from Broadway Boulevard to Central Street as they conduct their investigation.

The men returned to the area later in the morning, wearing hospital gowns and bandages.

While there, the men got into another argument and began walking up and down the street and yelling at one another. 

Neighbors say they are familiar with the men but have never seen them become so violent.

"This one, this might be the last straw if it starts getting more out of hand than it already has in this second incident just here today. I might be moving soon," a concerned neighbor said.
