Santa Barbara police were investigating a stabbing that occurred Tuesday afternoon on the city’s Eastside.

Officers responded shortly after 1 p.m. to an apartment complex on the 1000 block of Olive Street on a report of a fight in progress, according to police Sgt. Todd Johnson.

Upon arrival, they found a man in his late 20s who was stabbed on the street, Johnson said, adding that the victim lived at the complex.

As of Thursday morning, no one had been arrested but investigators had some leads, Johnson said. The assailants reportedly fled the scene on foot.

The stabbing victim was taken by ambulance to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, and his injuries were not believed to be life-threatening, Johnson said.

The man was in stable condition and recovering from his injuries. 

Noozhawk Managing Editor Giana Magnoli reported from the scene.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
