An undocumented immigrant wanted for coming back into the United States after being deported was charged after prosecutors say he stabbed a man in the torso during an April fight in Salt Lake City.
The man was charged Tuesday in 3rd District Court with aggravated assault, a second-degree felony, and use of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person, a class A misdemeanor.
The man was booked into the Utah County jail and being held on $100,007 bond on federal charges for aggravated re-entry into the United States.
A group of people were drinking in a hotel room on April 2 at 754 W. North Temple, when one man left the room and another tried to fight him. A third man tried to intervene but the alleged assailant turned to him and said, "it was none of his business." He then attacked the man who tried to intervene with a box-cutter style knife, stabbing him in the stomach and leaving about half-foot long gash through skin and abdominal muscle, exposing his intestines, according to court records.
Police later arrived and found the undocumented immigrant lying on a bed with his shirt off. He was arrested after officers found the knife on him. He was uncooperative and heavily intoxicated, according to court documents.
