COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

At least three people were stabbed early Tuesday morning following an argument between two others on Alpine Road, according to the Richland County Sheriff's Department.

Investigators say the incident took place at a party when the suspect and one of the party-goers began to argue. That argument eventually turned physical, and three others attempted to split up the fight.

Officials say the suspect then pulled out a knife and stabbed the three others in the upper body.

All three victims were taken to Palmetto Health Richland for their injuries. Their conditions are not currently known.

The Sheriff's Department continues to search for the suspect, who is described as a Hispanic male.

If you have any information about this case, you are asked to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
