SOUTH SALT LAKE, Utah (ABC4 News) – The South Salt Lake Police Department is investigating a stabbing after a man showed up at the hospital Tuesday night.

Gary Keller with South Salt Lake Police says the incident occurred around 10 p.m. Tuesday, near Burton Avenue.

Keller says a cop from the emergency room at Salt Lake Regional Hospital called police with reports of an adult male telling him he had been stabbed. 

Police have not had a chance to talk to the man, he was not conscious when police arrived for an interview, Keller says.  

The man is in serious but stable condition. 

Keller says the victim has since been transferred to the University of Utah Medical Center before South Salt Lake detectives could interview him but they are waiting for the victim’s health to improve for a more detailed interview.

A suspect or motive for the stabbing has still not been identified, according to Keller.

The investigation is ongoing.
