      Investigators Assisting Authorities After Stabbing in Pittsburg County

      The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has been asked by Pittsburg County authorities to look into the stabbing of a man north of McAlester.

      The OSBI says 56-year-old John Edgar "Oscar" Young was stabbed, then run over with a vehicle, during a fight on Saturday. The OSBI says Young survived the incident and was able to escape into a wooded area before law officers arrived.

      Young has been taken to a Tulsa hospital for treatment. His condition was not released.

      The OSBI says a suspect in the case has been identified but has not been arrested. The person's name was not released.
