A man was arrested and booked into Davis County Jail Monday after he allegedly slashed the throat of another man during an early morning altercation in Clinton.
About 7 a.m., Clinton police officers responded to a 911 call reporting that there had been fight that ended with an occupant of a home near 700 W. 2400 North sustaining a neck wound.
The 31-year-old suspect reportedly had gone to the house to speak with his brother, a resident there. However, another man came out instead and words were exchanged. Witnesses said the suspect then grabbed the victim, slashing him across the throat with a knife.
