A 32-year-old man was found bleeding from stab wounds on the streets of Mountain View on Saturday evening, the Anchorage Police Department said Sunday.

Another man, 59, called authorities to admit he'd stabbed Michael Edward Bussey before police could trace a trail of blood left by the victim back to his apartment, a police spokeswoman said in a written statement.

Police got a call at around 7:15 p.m. from a person who said she'd been approached on the 4200 block of Peterkin Avenue by a man who was in and out of consciousness and bleeding from the head and torso, said APD spokeswoman Anita Shell.

Bussey told the woman he'd been stabbed. Arriving police took him to an area hospital, where he was listed in stable condition Sunday.

Police then began to follow a blood trail left by Bussey down the street.

While they were doing that, a man called the Anchorage Police Department to say he'd stabbed Bussy during an argument at an apartment complex on the 200 block of North Klevin Street.

The 59-year-old man's name has not been released.

Police haven't been able to speak to Bussey yet and are trying to determine what led to the stabbing, Shell said.

No arrests have been made.
