The Syracuse Police Department is currently investigating a stabbing that occurred on Lancaster Avenue early Saturday morning, police said.

Through its investigation, SPD learned that the 21-year-old stabbing victim was involved in a large fight at a house party at about 1:45 a.m. on Saturday in the 100 block of Lancaster Avenue, according to the report. The victim left the party and went home before realizing he had been stabbed.

The victim sustained a small laceration to his chest, which is considered non-life threatening, according to the report.
