The Lincoln Police Department is investigating a seemingly random stabbing that happened near 27th and Holdrege streets at about 11 p.m. Friday. 

Officer Luke Bonkiewicz said officers responded to a reported assault in the 1700 block of North 26th Street, where they found a 16-year-old who said he had been stabbed. Bonkiewicz said the teen had a half-inch cut on the upper area of his right shin. 

The teen told officers that someone came up behind him, stabbed him and ran away, leaving the non-life-threatening cut that required a few stitches, Bonkiewicz said.

LPD is still investigating the incident. Bonkiewicz said no arrests have been made and there are no suspects.
