SALT LAKE CITY — Two men were stabbed and a third man assaulted Wednesday afternoon at Pioneer Park.

Just before 4 p.m., an altercation between four men in their mid-40s — all believed to be homeless — resulted in two men stabbed and another sustaining a head injury, police said. None of the injuries are life-threatening.

Police said witnesses described the attacker as a Native American male.

"We don't know exactly what caused the altercation to begin with," Salt Lake City Police detective Josh Ashdown said.

The altercation occurred in the southeast corner of the park at 300 West and 400 South, Ashdown said.

The victims were transported by ambulance to area hospitals, he said.
