A Cuban national was being held without bail Thursday after being arrested in a west Salt Lake City stabbing that left a man in serious condition.
Salt Lake City police Det. Dennis McGowan said the 50-year-old suspect allegedly stabbed the 24-year-old victim during an altercation in an area frequented by transients near the 100 South block of 600 West about 6:20 a.m. Wednesday.
The victim had left the area briefly and returned, finding unspecified personal property missing. He confronted the 50-year-old suspect, a fist fight ensued and then the suspect allegedly pulled a knife and stabbed the victim.
