BUTTE - A suspect is being sought after stabbing another man at the Butte WalMart.
Just before 11 p.m. on Tuesday, June 11, 911 dispatch received a medical emergency report after the suspect and a Butte man were reportedly involved in a verbal altercation by the WalMart entrance.
The suspect went to swing at the victim while holding a knife, but the victim didn't see the knife and put up his hands to guard himself. He suffered deep lacerations to his hands and was transported to St. James Healthcare for treatment.
The suspect fled and law enforcement is currently looking for him.
