SALT LAKE CITY — A man was in "somewhat stable condition" Monday after he was stabbed by a woman at a Salt Lake City homeless shelter, police said.
The man, who is in his 40s, forcefully took crack cocaine from the woman while at the shelter, 210 S. Rio Grande, said Salt Lake police detective Cody Lougy. The woman became upset, chased the man and stabbed him once, he said. The man started fighting back, knocked the woman down and started kicking her.
The two were not cooperative when police arrived, and officers used pepper spray to help gain control of the man. He later assaulted police and medical personnel, and had to be restrained in the ambulance on the way to University Hospital, Lougy said.
The man was arrested for investigation of robbery, assault and resisting arrest. The woman was arrested for investigation of aggravated assault.
The names of the man and woman were not released.
