SALT LAKE CITY – A woman is in critical condition after a stabbing downtown.

Officers said it happened on 270 S. Rio Grande St. near the homeless shelter at about 7 p.m. Sunday

Police said the 36-year-old woman was in a car with a group of people.

For some reason, the woman got out of the car and began arguing with two people on the street.

Police said the argument escalated and the woman was stabbed multiple times.

“The suspect on the sidewalk got into an altercation with our victim who exited the vehicle and we’re still developing information as to why there was an altercation and what started it,” Salt Lake Police Lt. Martin Kaufmann said.

The woman was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

    And Salt Lake City would like to visit their problem on other communities in this valley? What happens in Salt Lake City should stay in Salt Lake City. The rest of us don’t want their problems.

    hey bob. maybe they travel TO Salt Lake from other areas and bring the problems – it could be that this is not truly a local issue.

      Come January Salt Lake City gets an ultra liberal mayor. I have no doubt that she will find a solution to the problem. The good citizens of that city will step up to the plate and pay for it.

    There is a new mayor in Salt Lake City and she’s as far left as liberals can get. Hold on to your wallets folks. Her agenda to take care of the homeless is going to cost Salt Lakers a ton of money.
