Salt Lake City police were seeking to unravel the details of a knife attack that left a man seriously injured Wednesday morning.
Public safety dispatchers confirmed a 911 call reporting a stabbing came in at 2:35 a.m. Responding police officers found a pool of blood and followed the blood trail to find the 22-year-old victim, bleeding from a head wound, on the west side of the homeless shelter at 245 S. 500 West, said Detective Cody Lougy.
The man, whose identity was not released, was taken to the hospital and initially reported to be in "very serious" condition, according to the police. Later Wednesday, he was stabilized and his condition was upgraded, Lougy said.
