BALDWIN, Pa. —

Police are looking for a man accused of stabbing another man in the chest early Tuesday morning after leaving a bar in Baldwin.

Authorities said the victim was stabbed about 2 a.m. after he and his girlfriend left Hog’s Bar on Prospect Road in Baldwin.

According to police, the victim’s girlfriend got into an argument with a man police said she knew inside the bar.

Investigators said once the victim and his girlfriend left the bar, a group of men followed them.

“When they left the bar, this individual and several individuals followed them out of the bar. It’s unclear what happened then,” Baldwin Police Chief Michael Scott said.

Police said the couple ultimately got into the victim’s car and finally realized he’s been stabbed and was bleeding from his torso. The victim’s girlfriend convinced him to go to a hospital.

“He drove himself to Jefferson Hospital where he was listed in critical condition,” Scott said.

Officials said hospital personnel decided the victim needed to be flown to UPMC Presbyterian Hospital for treatment. His name and condition have not been released.

Police said the suspect is a man whose nickname is “Fats.” Investigators said he’s 27 years old, 5-feet 9-inches tall and weighs about 300 pounds.

According to police, the bar has surveillance footage that they hope to use in their investigation.

Authorities said they believe the suspect lives in the West Mifflin, Lincoln Place area. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact police.
