TAYLORSVILLE, Utah – A fight between roommates turned violent and now police are looking for a man they said is responsible for his roommate ending up in the hospital.

Authorities said the man sliced his roommate across the forehead.

Officers found a 39-year-old man outside his house near 7th W. and Big Mountain Drive with a large gash on his head.

Police said the victim and another roommate were arguing and the fight moved outside.

Officials said the man cut the victim and ran.

“We have been trying to make contact with the suspect but as of right now, we haven’t been able to make contact,” Lt. Justin Hoyal said. “We’re not releasing his name at this time as he is still just a suspect in the case, but we are looking for him.”

The victim was taken to a nearby hospital and is expected to recover.
