TULSA, Oklahoma -- Two stabbing victims were discovered in Tulsa overnight Saturday after they were injured in a brawl in a downtown parking lot. One victim collapsed in front of a bar at 2nd and Elgin while the second man wrecked his car as he tried to drive to the hospital.

Tulsa Police Sergeant Steve Stoltz said the first victim was discovered by a K9 officer in front of Woody's Bar at 2nd and Elgin at about 2:20 a.m.

A few minutes later, a wrecker driver saw the second stabbing victim crash his vehicle at 3rd and South Cheyenne, get out of the car and stagger off, covered in blood.

Investigating officers learned that both victims were friends who had gotten into a fight with another group of men in a 2nd and South Detroit parking lot. Each was stabbed multiple times.

"One ran to Woody's Bar where he collapsed in front of the bar," Stoltz said. "Apparently the suspects chased him over here, continuing to assault him."

The second stabbing victim got into his car to drive to the hospital but instead hit a couple of cars before wrecking into a fence.

Both men were taken to local hospitals. Chris Stevens of EMSA said both were 23 years old and in serious condition.

Police are looking for an Indian male in his late teens or early 20s. He is described as about 5'7" and 150 pounds, with "scraggly" brown hair. He was wearing a white shirt.

They believe the man drove off in a white four-door BMW heading eastbound on 2nd Street.

Tulsa police are continuing to investigate the stabbings.
