CACHE COUNTY, Utah — Two men have been booked into jail and face charges of aggravated assault after a man suffered stab wounds during an altercation at a party in Providence.

A man arrived at a hospital in Hyrum just before 3 a.m. Saturday with a slash wound to his head and face and stab wounds to his chest and back, according to a press release from the Cache County Sheriff’s Office.

The victim’s wounds were determined to be not life-threatening, but he was admitted to a hospital for observation.

The man told police he was injured during an altercation at a party in Providence, and he gave police information on the suspects as well as some witnesses.

Two men from Logan, 26-year-old Michael Sao and 24-year-old Jim Tiew, were identified as persons of interest in the case. The men were detained by deputies and interviewed. Detectives executing a search warrant at Tiew’s apartment located evidence corroborating the allegations against the men.

After investigating for several hours, police arrested Sao and Tiew in connection with the wounds the victim suffered at the party. Both men were booked into the Cache County Jail and face one count each of Aggravated Assault as a second-degree felony and Obstruction of Justice as a third-degree felony.
