Police were called to a home on First Street after an attempted stabbing Wednesday night. The stabbing happened at a fraternity party on the 300 block of Russell Boulevard.
The attack began after two party-goers got into an argument. The suspect then tried to stab the victim twice, according to the Davis Police Department.
“The victim was able to stop the attack long enough for other party goers to intervene and separate the two,” said Lt. Glenn Glasgow. “The victim sustained a minor injury to his hand when he grabbed the knife to stop the assault.”
Lt. Glasgow described the knife as a "pocket knife-like instrument." (The knife pictured is not the specific knife. It's a stock image).
Police would not reveal the name of the fraternity where the party was taking place because it’s an ongoing investigation, and could have evidence of value while they conduct that investigation.
The suspect is described as a White male adult in his 20s, about 6-foot 4-inches tall with a thin build and blonde hair.
“They didn’t know each other,” said Glasgow of the two involved in the incident. “I don’t know what the argument was over.”
After others intervened, the victim was taken to the home on First Street, at which point police were called.
