Two men were stabbed outside a downtown night club near L.A. Live early Friday morning following a confrontation, authorities said.

The stabbing occurred outside the Icon LA Ultra Lounge in the 1200 block of South Figueroa Street at 1:50 a.m., Los Angeles police Officer Luis Garcia said. The two victims exited the club and were waiting for a friend to pick them up when they were approached by a group of four men.

An argument escalated into a fight that left the two men with stab wounds, Garcia said. Their friend took the two men to County-USC Medical Center shortly after the stabbings. Their condition was unknown.

The men's attackers fled south on Figueroa and remain at-large, police said.
