ST. GEORGE – St. George Police responded to a report of a physical fight in progress around 1:36 p.m. Monday about a block away from the St. George LDS Temple. When Police arrived they found one man had fled the scene after stabbing another man in the face just below the eye.
“There were two men fighting around the area of 300 East 400 South,” Sgt. Sam Despain of the St. George City Police Department said. “During this argument, one of the men produced a small pocket knife, stabbing the other man under the left eye.”
Gold Cross Ambulance was called to the scene and transported the injured man to Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George with non-life threatening injuries, Despain said.
Before officers could arrive, the other man fled the scene and was last seen in the area of the Temple’s Visitor Center. However, officers said they have obtained his information.
“Our officers are currently in the process of tracking that man down,” Despain said. “No one in the public is believed to be in any danger, as this was an argument between these two men.”
This report is based on preliminary information and may not contain the full scope of findings.
