FBI seeks help after weekend stabbing on Ute reservation
FORT DUCHESNE, Uintah County — The FBI is looking for the public's help after a man was stabbed over the weekend on the Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation in northeastern Utah.
Bureau of Indian Affairs police and FBI agents were called about 10:30 p.m. Saturday to a house in the Richardson subdivision north of U.S. 40 in Fort Duchesne, according to the FBI's Vernal field office.
A 39-year-old man, who had been living in the home for about a month, was stabbed multiple times with an unidentified weapon, the FBI said.
The injured man was taken by ambulance to Uintah Basin Medical Center in Roosevelt, then flown by helicopter to a Salt Lake area hospital. He is expected to survive.
The victim and a witness told investigators that more than one person took part in the assault, though neither could provide authorities with physical descriptions of the attackers.
Anyone with information about the incident should call the FBI office in Salt Lake City at 801-579-1400 or in Vernal at 435-789-2112.
