"His injuries turned out to be pretty superficial," Hoyal said.

Hoyal said the man told police he had stopped his car near Kearns High School, 5525 S. Cougar Lane, about 9 p.m. Wednesday due to car trouble. While he was outside the vehicle, the male suspect approached him on foot and demanded his wallet; when the victim refused, the man stabbed him and ran from the scene.

Hoyal said the victim then drove his car to a nearby home and called the police. The victim was taken by ambulance to Intermountain Health Center in Murray.

The suspect, described only as being about 5-foot-10 and stocky, remained at large Thursday.
