Homicide detectives investigating south side stabbing

LOUISVILLE (WAVE) - Homicide detectives are investigating after a man was fatally stabbed on the city's south side late Sunday.

Dispatchers say police were called Sunday evening to La Tapatia Mexican Restaurant in the 8100 block of Preston Highway after reports that a man had been stabbed.

Police say the victim, an unidentified Hispanic in his 20s, was rushed to University Hospital, where he died early Monday.

Officers say a group of at least 10 people were in the parking lot when they arrived, and at least one of them used a baseball bat to damage a car.

Investigators say they still haven't found the weapon used in the crime, and police had to call in Spanish speaking officers to aid in the investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to call the anonymous LMPD crime tipline at 574-LMPD (574-5683).
