A 25-year-old man is in critical condition after being stabbed twice in his stomach early Wednesday morning on Detroit's west side.

The stabbing took place about 1 a.m. in the area of McGraw and Tarnow, said Officer Dan Donakowski, a Detroit Police Department spokesman. That's north of Interstate 94 and west of Livernois.

The victim was working on his car when the suspect started driving his black Chevrolet Silverado around the victim's work area and spinning his tires. 

The men exchanged words, then the altercation got physical. Sometime during the fight, the suspect allegedly stabbed the victim twice in his stomach before fleeing.

The victim was privately transported to an area hospital and is listed in critical condition.

Police describe the suspect as an Hispanic male, 6-feet to 6-feet 2-inches tall, 220 pounds, with short hair and a light-colored beard. He wore a Detroit Tigers jersey and jeans.
