TULSA – Authorities are investigating after a driver says they were flagged down by a man covered in blood near the Peoria Inn in midtown.

The driver who reported the incident spoke with 2 Works for You saying that they were driving to work when they noticed the man attempting to flag down someone for help. According to the driver, the man had blood all over his body.

Tulsa police later confirmed that Alex Harvey, the alleged victim, and a man nicknamed “Old School” got into an argument resulting in Harvey being stabbed.

A witness at the inn told Tulsa police that she allowed Harvey and "Old School" into her room around midnight. She said the two claimed to be from New York.

Harvey suffers from several lacerations to the neck, says TPD, but is expected to survive. The suspect, “Old School,” reportedly fled the scene and is currently being sought by authorities.

"Old School" is described as a black man with short and blond dreads, around early 20s and wearing red shorts, according to Tulsa police.
