ST. GEORGE — On Thursday at about 6:30 p.m., a 25-year-old man reported that he had been assaulted after being approached by four men near the Halfway Wash bike path by Dixie Sunset Plaza, 1812 West Sunset Blvd. The man said that one of the suspects then stabbed him with a knife on the chin.
The man flagged down Gold Cross paramedics in the parking lot, he was bleeding and had a three-to-four-inch cut on his chin, according to a statement released by the St. George Police Department.
The man told police that three Hispanic men and one Caucasian man approached him and that one of the Hispanic men then assaulted him with a knife. After the assault the four men fled the area in an unknown direction.
Police searched the area but were unable to locate the suspects.
“We have very little description of the suspects or the knife that was used,” St. George Police Sgt. Sam Despain said. As far as a motive for the assault, Despain said, “we are still trying to figure that out.”
The man was transported to the Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George by Gold Cross Ambulance with non-life threatening injuries to his chin, the statement said.
The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to please contact the St. George Police Department at 435-627-4300.
