A man who was stabbed twice during a fight in a Pioneer Park paid his assailant $30 to stop knifing him, police wrote. In jail documents, police wrote that an altercation broke out late Monday between the two men. One of the men pulled out a knife, chased the other down and began stabbing him, police wrote. The victim suffered two "very deep" cuts in his arm and then gave the man $30 "to quit cutting him," police wrote. The accused assailant is in the Salt Lake County jail. - Erin Alberty
