NYPD

Police are looking for a man they say stabbed a 35-year-old man at least eight times -- all to different body parts -- inside Manhattan's Tompkins Square Park after an apparent argument, authorities say.

Investigators say the two started fighting in the park around 6 p.m. last Monday, well before the sun went down.

It wasn't clear what they fought about, but police say the suspect pulled out a sharp object and stabbed the victim multiple times before running off.

The victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital with stab wounds to his left and right shoulders, chest, life arm, right forearm, left and right legs and his left calf. He was said to be in critical condition but is expected to survive.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS,
