SHARE Man stabbed 3 times in Ogden confrontation

OGDEN — Police said a man was stabbed three times during a confrontation that may have gang ties.

Officers said a 15-year-old went to an apartment Sunday on Washington Boulevard and shouted a gang name. Two brothers shouted another name back and police said the 15-year-old "suckerpunched" one of them.

"They started punching back," Ogden Police Lt. Loring Draper said Monday. "The kid saw he was bleeding and had been stabbed three times."

Police said the teen had been stabbed in the head, the arm and in the hip. He was driven to Ogden's McKay-Dee Hospital, where he was treated and released for his wounds.

A 19-year-old man was booked into the Weber County Jail on investigation of attempted murder.
