SANDY — A man was stabbed multiple times following a confrontation in Sandy.

An estranged couple got into a fight with another man — a friend of the wife — in Midvale early Friday morning, according to Sandy police.

The couple left and went to a home near 8000 South and 711 East in Sandy. The other man arrived and the fight continued.

"During that confrontation the estranged husband was stabbed a few times by the other male party," said Sgt. Cory Hess. "The injuries were not life-threatening."

The husband was stabbed four times in the shoulder, stomach, back and abdomen. He was taken to a hospital. Police said the victim was in stable condition Friday.

The argument was over "random things," Hess said, adding that alcohol may have also played a factor.

The suspect was taken into custody and interviewed by detectives.
