SOUTH JORDAN — One man is in critical condition with stab wounds and his alleged attacker is in jail after a brawl broke out in a South Jordan driveway.

Police arrested Andrew Russell, 27, after he was treated for a stab wound in the back and booked him into the Salt Lake County Jail.

He is accused of stabbing a 41-year-old man and inflicting life-threatening injuries that left the victim hospitalized in critical condition. Another man, 23, was also stabbed but is expected to survive.

According to South Jordan police spokesman Matt Pennington, the trio of men were helping their girlfriends move out of a house at 5897 W. Hill Stone Drive in South Jordan when a disagreement happened and the stabbings ensued.

Russell was booked for investigation of aggravated assault and possession of a weapon by a restricted person.

The case remains under investigation.
