Police are looking for a man who stabbed three other men at a Hollywood tattoo parlor before fleeing the scene early this morning.

The stabbings happened at L.A. Tattoo, a parlor on Hollywood Boulevard around 2:20am, according to CBS Los Angeles. One man was stabbed in the abdomen, another in the back and a third in the hand. The first two guys had critical injuries, but they had stable vital signs, City News Service reported.

It's not clear what might have prompted the attack or whether the stabber knew his victims. The suspect was described only as a Hispanic male.
