KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas City are investigating a cutting that occurred near 38th and Broadway just before 5:30 a.m. Thursday.

According to police, there are possibly four victims. Three men were taken to area hospitals, including one who was cut in the bicep. The fourth victim, who police believe is a woman, left the scene.

The men told police an argument led up to the suspect cutting them. Police say they don't believe the victims knew the suspect.

All of the injuries are considered non-life threatening.

Police did say they are looking for a white man armed with a hunting knife and wearing all purple in connection with the cutting. They also said this situation is a cutting instead of a stabbing because the victims had cuts all over their bodies, not stab wounds.
