A 30-year-old Native American man is in stable condition Thursday after being stabbed June 20 at the Safeway Supermarket.

Gallup Police Captain Marinda Spencer said details were still limited since the report on the incident had not come in, but call logs indicated that the victim had received moderate injuries as a result of a confrontation with the suspect who then fled after the stabbing.

His condition when medical personnel arrived on the scene was serious, she said, adding that he had to be treated for uncontrollable bleeding.

She added that the police have a suspect in custody who was being questioned Thursday morning but no charges had been filed at that time.
