Officers arrived and contacted the victim, 49-year-old Woodland resident Michael Moore, on the fourth floor.  Officers learned that Moore had been involved in an altercation with another subject on the fourth floor landing/foyer and, during the altercation, was stabbed several times.  Moore sustained non-life-threatening wounds and was transported by ground ambulance to the Woodland Memorial Hospital for treatment.
