SALT LAKE CITY — Police arrested a man who allegedly stabbed another man with a 12-inch knife late Sunday night, officials said.

Neighbors who witnessed the stabbing outside an apartment on Pacific Avenue called police just after 10 p.m., according to Salt Lake Police Lt. Craig Gleason.

They pointed out the alleged assailant when police arrived, but the man ran away, Gleason said.

The man got away for a short time, but police contained the area, and K9 assets found him in the block.

The alleged stabber has been identified as Wesley Moser, 40, according to police.

Witnesses said the knife was about 12 inches long, but police have not yet recovered the weapon.

The injured man, also 40, was taken to the hospital for treatment, and Gleason said he should be fine.

Police said the men claim not to know each other.

Police are hoping the victim will answer their questions after treatment, but he was not initially cooperating.

More details will be posted as they become available.
