One man was hospitalized and another jailed after a stabbing Sunday night in Tacoma.

The 63-year-old victim was dropped off at Tacoma General Hospital around 9 p.m. Sunday with possible life threatening stab wounds, Tacoma police spokesman Mark Fulghum said. Officers responded to the hospital and got information about where the stabbing took place.

Officers went to where the victim had been staying in the 1000 block of South Seventh Street and knocked on the door. The suspect, a 53-year-old man, reportedly opened the door and put up his hands, Fulghum said.

Tacoma police booked the man into Pierce County Jail this morning on suspicion of first-degree assault and  outstanding warrants.

Meanwhile, the victim was reportedly in stable condition after surgery, Fulghum said.

The motive for the stabbing was not immediately known.
