A man is in critical condition after police say he was stabbed several times in Yakima this afternoon.

Police say it happened around 1:45 at an apartment on the 200 block of North Second Street.

Officers say the victim is a 28 year old man, and was taken to a local hospital.

The suspect is a 42 year old man who lives in the apartment -- police say overdosed on over the counter medications and was found unconscious inside the apartment.

The suspect was later released from the hospital following medical treatment and booked into the Yakima County Jail for investigation of first degree assault.
