One woman was stabbed in the neck late Sunday at a South Salt Lake apartment complex after police allege she and another woman decided to fight over which of them should date a jail inmate.
South Salt Lake police said the incident had started earlier in the day at a park when the two women, who both wanted to be in a relationship with the same inmate, decided to fight it out. The altercation started again about 11 p.m. at the Sun River Apartments, 1080 W. 3300 South.
When police arrived, officers said they found a 19-year-old woman had been stabbed in the back of her neck. She was listed in fair condition Monday, police said.
Police said they located one of the vehicles involved in the altercation in Taylorsville, and questioned and released the occupants. Police said they were still trying to locate a second vehicle Monday.
Police said the women’s "love-triangle" involved a man who is currently incarcerated.
