A 23-year-old man is recovering after he was stabbed about a block away from UK's campus early Saturday morning. 

According to Lexington Police officials, Zack Gibbs was stabbed four or five times near the intersection of South Limestone Street and Chrysalis Court.

Investigators learned Gibbs had been in an altercation earlier that night, which could have led to the stabbing.

Police said they are looking for a couple who were in the area at the time of the stabbing, just to ask them some questions. They believe they may have some information about what happened.

Gibbs sent a tweet from his hospital bed which read, "I'm okay everybody thank you for all the support!" 

He also attached a picture of himself giving a thumbs up.
