SOUTH JORDAN — Three men were injured, one critically, after they were stabbed during an altercation at a South Jordan home late Sunday night, police said.

One of the men injured, 27-year-old Andrew Russell, was arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault and possession of a weapon by a restricted person, in connection with the stabbings, South Jordan police said Monday afternoon.

The incident happened at a home located at 5897 W. Hill Stone Drive, which is near 11800 South in the Sunstone Village neighborhood, according to South Jordan Police Lt. Matt Pennington.

Russell, a 23-year-old man and a 41-year-old man were in the process of helping their friends move from the home when some sort of altercation broke out. Police said Russell left but returned and another argument broke out, leading to the stabbing.

The 41-year-old man and 23-year-old man were both stabbed in the torso, while police said Russell was stabbed in the back.

Two of the men went to the University of Utah South Jordan Health Center about a mile from the home to be treated. Staff at the facility reported the stabbing to police shortly before midnight; another 911 call came from the home, Pennington said.

The 41-year-old man was flown to University of Utah Hospital in critical condition and remained in critical but stable condition Monday afternoon. The 23-year-old man was taken to Intermountain Medical Center and remains in "stable condition," according to police.

Police said Russell showed up at Jordan Valley Medical Center in West Jordan not long after the incident. He was released from the hospital Monday and then booked into Salt Lake County Jail.

Officers received a warrant and began searching the home for evidence late Monday morning.
