SALT LAKE CITY — A man stabbed a stranger in the bathroom of a Flying J in Salt Lake City on Saturday, police said.
The man was arguing with the staff at a Denny’s located in the Flying J at 2100 S. 900 West before he went into the bathroom where he “exchanged words” with a stranger, Salt Lake City Lt. Brandon Hansen said. The incident occurred around 7:30 p.m.
The man then stabbed the stranger in the stomach and fled the scene in an unknown direction, Hansen said. The victim, whose injuries are not considered life threatening, was taken to a local hospital.
Police described the man suspected of the stabbing as a thin, white man wearing white pants who is about 50 years old and 5 feet 5 inches tall.
The investigation is ongoing.
