SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say they’re looking for the man who used a sword to stab another man during a fight at a Syracuse bar.

Syracuse police say 49-year-old Johnny Floyd of Syracuse was stabbed once in the torso after a fight broke out around 9 p.m. Thursday at the B&B Lounge.

Officials say Floyd was taken to Upstate University Hospital for treatment of serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say the suspect is a man in his 50’s who’s an acquaintance of Floyd. Police haven’t said what type of sword was used in the attack.
