PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Police are investigating an overnight stabbing in Rhode Island's capital city.

Providence police say patrol officers found a 24-year-old man bleeding from multiple stab wounds early Sunday. The victim was taken to Rhode Island Hospital, where he underwent surgery.

The Providence Journal reports that officers had observed a disturbance on the front porch of a home prior to spotting the victim. They then saw the man leaving through the side yard.

It's unclear what the victim's current condition is.
