A 19-year-old man was stabbed outside a Salt Lake nightclub early this morning.

Police came across several men fighting in front of Monks, 19 E. 200 South, just before 2 a.m., said Salt Lake police detective Jeff Bedard.

The men ran off when they saw police but were stopped a brief time later near 250 S. Main. After stopping the men, officers discovered one of them had been stabbed in his left hand and lower back. He was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Investigators were looking for the attacker today, but Bedard said they believe they know who is responsible. The cause of the fight remains under investigation.
