A fight outside of Smokey’s Jan. 12, on 505 N. Hwy 491, resulted in one man being stabbed.

The suspect fled the scene, and the victim, who was stabbed in the arm, was airlifted to Albuquerque for treatment.

Gallup Police Department Capt. Marinda Spencer said the call came in at 9:21 pm.

The Native American male suspect fled on foot. He was reportedly wearing a blue or black jacket with a light blue shirt over it, black shirt, and blue jeans. He is about 6 ft. tall, 170 lbs.

Condition of the victim is unknown at this time, but Spencer said the cut to the arm was severe. It’s unclear whether either man was inside of Smokey’s prior to the altercation, which occurred in the restaurant’s west parking lot, facing Rio West Mall.

The suspect was last seen heading northwest on foot. Spencer asks that anyone with information on the suspect to call Metro Dispatch at (505) 722-2002.
