FARMINGTON, Utah — A Davis County Jail inmate required hospitalization after he was stabbed over the weekend.

“Violence against persons is not something we take lightly, anywhere and everywhere it occurs,” said Davis County Sheriff Kelly V. Sparks in a news release. “Proper medical treatment and a swift recovery for the injured male are priorities to us. Equally important, is holding those responsible for this incident accountable and taking measures to prevent it or something similar from happening again.”

Farmington Police, the Davis County Correctional Facility and Davis County's Life Safety Committee will investigate the stabbing.

The victim's identity was not released.
