Anchorage police say a man was stabbed while walking on a Spenard street Friday night.

About 8:34 p.m., police received a report of a stabbing near the Longhouse on the 4300 block of Wisconsin Street, Anchorage police spokeswoman Jennifer Castro said in a statement.

Police and paramedics responded and found a man with two stab wounds, Castro said. He was taken to a hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

The man told police he had been stabbed by a male stranger, Castro said.
