Police on Saturday were investigating three early-morning stabbings that left at least six people injured. The incidents appear to be unrelated.
Two men found at Arctic Circle, 860 W. North Temple, at 12:30 a.m. were unwilling to describe their attackers. Witnesses, however, described a fight at the nearby Beto's to authorities. The witnesses said four men jumped out of a maroon Crown Victoria, in which they later escaped. The victims' car was later found at the scene with a broken glass bottle covered in blood from one of the victims. Blood also led to where the victims were found at the restaurant parking lot. The victims were stabbed multiple times but only sustained minor wounds. Police are still looking for suspects.
About 12:38 a.m., police say a party was ending at 1481 W. 700 South when three cars pulled up and several males got out and attacked a man leaving the party. Another partygoer saw the attack and tried to break it up. He was also stabbed several times.
Later that evening, another man arrived at the hospital who had been stabbed multiple times. The victim told police he was putting his child in the car, leaving the same party, when he was attacked. All three victims are expected to recover from minor wounds. There are no suspects at this time.A lone male was walking near 400 S. Post St. when he was stabbed from behind at 4:45 a.m. Police say they received a phone call from a man at a 7-Eleven who confessed to the stabbing. While no reason was given, police were told the suspect is a friend of the victim's father. The suspect has been booked at the Salt Lake County Jail on investigation of aggravated assault
