SPOKANE -- Police are investigating a stabbing that happened near Third and Wall in Downtown Spokane.

They found a man at an apartment complex on Wall around 9:20 p.m. Friday.  They got a call that he had been stabbed in the buttocks.  Police said the 51-year-old man went to the hospital with a four inch deep gash.  Police said he lost a lot of blood and was going in and out of consciousness before an ambulance arrived.

The victim told police he was stabbed by a white man wearing all black.  Police said they did find a man fitting that description and questioned him.  However, police have not said if that is the suspect.

Police said they do believe the attack may have been a robbery because the victim said the suspect took his beer.
