SHARE Stabbing sends a man to hospital, one to jail

One man is in jail after police say he stabbed his co-worker in the chest with a small knife.

Police say the victim, 22, was roughhousing with the 25-year-old man at Young Electric Sign Co., 1148 S. 300 West, Monday at approximately 10:30 a.m. The 25-year-old man was apparently losing and decided to level the playing field by stabbing the victim in the chest with an Xacto knife, Salt Lake Police Sgt. Fred Louis said.

The victim was treated and released Monday from LDS Hospital.

The other man remained in the Salt Lake County Jail Tuesday morning for investigation of aggravated assault.
