SOUTH JORDAN, Utah — A man has been arrested after an altercation that left himself and two others with stab wounds late Sunday night in South Jordan.

Three roommates in the Daybreak neighborhood all suffered stab wounds in the altercation.

Police say two men arrived at the University of Utah Health Center in South Jordan shortly before midnight with stab wounds. A 41-year-old was flown to the U of U Medical Center in Salt Lake City with life-threatening injuries, and now is in critical but stable condition. The other man, 23, had non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to Intermountain Medical Center in Murray.

Andrew Russell, 27, showed up at Jordan Valley Medical Center with non-life-threatening stab wounds, and was arrested upon his release.

He was booked on suspicion of felony aggravated assault and possession of a weapon by a restricted person. Court records show Russell has been convicted of multiple felonies over the years as early as 2012, ranging from burglary and robbery to failure to stop at the command of officers.

South Jordan Police said the three men, who rented a home on Hill Stone Drive together, were in the process of moving Sunday and an altercation occurred between two of them earlier in the day.

A second altercation occurred Sunday night between Russell and the 41-year-old, police said. The 23-year-old tried to stop the fight and suffered multiple stab wounds. It's unclear who stabbed Russell or if either of the other men will face charges.

Anyone who has additional information about this incident is asked to contact the South Jordan Police Department at 801-840-4000.
