Red Deer RCMP are looking for suspects in a stabbing that happened early Saturday morning, sending one young man to hospital.

Police responded to a call about a stabbing on the old CPR bridge in Red Deer around 1:55 a.m.

Two males, one of which was later sent to hospital, had been walking on the bridge when they encountered a group of three other young men, police said. A fight broke out among the two groups and a 21-year-old was stabbed once in the abdomen.

The victim was taken to a nearby residence and then transported to Red Deer Regional Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

RCMP are asking the public for help in locating the three suspects.

The first is described as aboriginal, 1.8 metres tall (five feet 11 inches) and about 19 to 21 years-old. He was wearing a blue jacket and black pants and carrying a four to five inch knife.

The second suspect is also believed to be aboriginal, 1.78 metres tall (five feet 10 inches), heavy set and around the same age. He was wearing a red hat, red shirt with lined designs and black track pants. He was also carrying a knife and has little to no hair.

The third suspect is described as aboriginal, 1.8 metres tall (five feet 11 inches) and was wearing a red hat, red t-shirt and black track pants. He is also believed to be 19 to 21 years-old.

One of the male suspects may go by the first name Darian, said RCMP.

There were also two unknown females with the three suspects but no descriptions were available at the time.

Anyone with information that may help in locating or identifying the three suspects is asked to call RCMP at 403-343-5575 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.tipsubmit.com to remain anonymous.
