DENVER — Denver police are investigating a stabbing that occurred Thursday morning near the Highland Bridge.

Sonny Jackson with the Denver Police Department said they received a call around 7:15 a.m. about a verbal altercation between two people around 16th Street and Platte Street. At some point, the altercation led to a stabbing.

A female was transported to a hospital for her injuries. She is now in stable condition, Jackson said.
