Missoula Police are looking for a man who allegedly attacked another man with a machete or long knife early Tuesday morning. Detective Sergeant Travis Welsh says the attack occurred near the corner of Bancroft and South West Higgins, and the victim was transported to Missoula's St. Patrick Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Welsh says authorities know the identity of the suspect, but he has eluded capture thus far, so Welsh is asking anyone with knowledge of the incident to contact the Missoula Police department at 552-6300, or Crimestoppers at 721-44-44.
