It happened around 4:35 p.m. on Kellogg Street in the Urbandale area of Battle Creek.

Police said the victim was approached by a man who initiated a fight with the victim where both were wrestling on the ground. During the scuffle, the victim was stabbed in the abdomen.

The suspect is described by police as a black man standing approximately 5-foot-6 in his late 30s with a stocky build. He was last seen wearing a dark hoodie and dark acid-washed jeans.
