OCEANSIDE, Calif. (KGTV) -- A man was sent to the hospital after being stabbed during a fight in Oceanside, police said.

The incident occurred Sunday at around 5:20 a.m. in the 1300 block of Dubuque Street, according to Oceanside police.

Police were called to the area in response to a report of a “large fight,” but when officers arrived, “they were unable to locate any disturbance” but found “a large amount of blood at the scene.”

A witness told police they saw a black BMW speeding from the scene following the incident, according to police.

About 30 minutes later, officers were called to Tri-City Medical Center regarding a stabbing victim.
