TULSA, Oklahoma -- A man who says he had been stabbed showed up at a West Tulsa fire station screaming for help.

He was transported by EMSA at 3:15 p.m. from Fire Station No. 26, 2400 W 51st St.

Captain Danny Kaiser of the Tulsa Fire Department said the victim was in his mid 30's and told firefighters he had been stabbed with a long knife. Firefighters say he told them he had been stabbed nearby. Kaiser said the victim was put on a backboard and given IV fluids before transport.

Other firefighters who helped treat the victim say he had lost a substantial amount of blood, and they believed he was dropped off at the station by someone who then left.

Tulsa Police are investigating. 

EMSA confirms that the victim is a 32-year-old man who was taken to a local hospital in serious condition.
