Pittsburgh Police officers from Zone 2 responded to a report of a stabbing in the 2500 block of Bedford Avenue just after 2:30 a.m.
When they arrived on scene they met with a male victim who had received a laceration to his left shoulder.
He told police he was followed down the street and then confronted by two males who tried, but failed, to rob him.
The victim told police he ran from the suspects, but was stabbed from behind when one of them caught up with him. He says the males fled when he threatened to call police.
The victim was later transported by EMS in stable condition to a local hospital for treatment.
Police are investigating.
