YAKIMA, Wash. -

Neighbors claim one of the assailants is another neighbor named Kurt Koerner, however deputies haven't confirmed that information to us just yet. Police have told us two men were involved in some type of argument with the 41-year-old victim on the 200 block of Buena Loop around 4 on Friday. So far, both men involved in the stabbing are on the run. Neighbors tell me they think the fight started over drugs and 3 thousand dollars. One neighbor gave us his take on the situation, but asked to remain anonymous.

"One of the guys, which was a Mexican guy, said my neighbor and someone else said that someone had stabbed him and robbed him for 3...4 grand. That's pretty much what we know..." says the neighbor

Neighbors also say Koerner returned to the neighborhood knocking on doors trying to seek refuge from police, but was turned away today. Police tell us the stabbing victim is out of the hospital tonight. They plan on continuing to search for the two suspects as everything here is still under investigation.
