A man was in serious condition Thursday evening after he was stabbed in the chest.

The man, 46, and an acquaintance had been arguing in the hallway of an apartment complex near 2000 South and 300 East when the acquaintance stabbed the man, according to Salt Lake City Police Lt. Dave Hoffman.

The man was taken to an area hospital, Hoffman said. He said the man's injury was not life-threatening.

Police continued to search for the assailant, who left the scene with a woman shortly after the stabbing.
