Police say there was an altercation between the two men inside the kitchen.

The confrontation escalated, and a 36-year-old male stabbed the 21-year-old victim multiple times in the leg.

Before police arrived, the suspect fled the scene. Around 1:00 Sunday afternoon, he turned himself into authorities.
