Update at 12:09 p.m.: The stabbing victim was treated at harborview and released, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Original post: A 60-year-old Honolulu man was hospitalized early this morning after police say he was stabbed on Capitol Hill.

According to a Seattle police report: the man was walking in the 900 block of East Pike Street when he was approached by two men. They got into an argument. The fight continued to the corner of Broadway and East Pike and three more people joined in and surrounded the victim.

Police, in their report, said “the primary aggressor” stabbed the man in the lower back with a four-inch knife, struck him on the head with a skateboard and hit him on the head with a bottle, causing “a severe laceration.” The man was taken to Harborview Medical Center; his medical condition this morning was not immediately known.

Police, who were dispatched at 2:12 a.m.,  described the suspects as three men and two women. The five suspects all took off before police arrived.
