A woman was in serious condition Tuesday, the day after she was stabbed during a fight at a downtown Salt Lake City homeless shelter.
Police received a 911 call about 5 p.m. Monday from the Road Home, 210 S. Rio Grande, and arrived to find the 56-year-old woman bleeding from a knife wound to her mid-section.
Salt Lake City police Detective Robin Snyder said the woman’s alleged attacker, a 63-year-old man, had been detained by bystanders for officers, who took him into custody without further incident.
It was not immediately known what led to the altercation.
The man, a transient from California, was being held without bail Tuesday in the Salt Lake County jail on suspicion of second-degree felony attempted murder and numerous misdemeanor counts ranging from retail theft to public intoxication.
