WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Authorities are investigating after a man was stabbed multiple times at a Wichita motel.

According to Wichita police Lt. James Espinoza, officers responded to Via Christi Hospital St. Francis at 10 a.m. Monday after a report of a stabbing at the Top Hat Motel.

Police say the man, who has not been identified, said he had been stabbed multiple times Sunday during a fight with two men around 9:30 p.m. Authorities say the man needed more than 50 stitches and staples for the numerous cuts he suffered on his back, stomach, chest and arms.

Espinoza said it is unclear why the victim waited to report the incident.
