One person was injured in an apparent stabbing Monday morning in the South Side Flats, authorities said.

A call from a male stabbing victim came at about 3:53 a.m. in the area of 19th Street and Edwards Way, an Allegheny County 911 supervisor said. Pittsburgh Police found the victim inside a residence in the 1800 block of Edwards, according to the supervisor.

Public Safety spokeswoman Sonya Toler said police detained four men who spoke only Spanish. The victim had a stab wound to his neck.

The stabbing victim was taken to a hospital. When the victim was able to speak with investigators, he reported that he had been drinking with the other men but did not know who stabbed him, Toler said. The man told police that he did not want to press charges.

Further information was not immediately available.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
