Authorities still looking for perpetrator

• Daily Leader staff report
An early Sunday morning altercation at Love’s Country Store resulted in stabbing. According to a press release from Liberal Police Capt. Patrick McClurg, at about 2 a.m. Sunday, an LPD officer was on patrol at Pershing Avenue and West Pancake Avenue when she observed a large group of males fighting at Love’s Country Store.  
“Upon entering the parking lot, the group began to scatter,” the report continued. “A 20-year-old male approached the officer saying he was stabbed.
“While the officer was attempting to secure the area, the male left the scene and was transported to Southwest Medical Center by a private vehicle. He was treated for a single stab wound to the abdomen.
“His condition is stable,” the report noted.
“This incident is still under investigation. Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Liberal Police Department at 626-0150 or the Crime Hotline at 624-4000. Persons providing information leading to the arrest of those responsible are eligible for a reward.”
