CLEARFIELD -- One brother was taken to the hospital and the other into police custody shortly after an argument escalated to violence Tuesday evening.
Two brothers were at their apartment at 104 W. 250 North in Clearfield when they started fighting, said Clearfield Police Sgt. Mike Valencia.
The argument escalated until police believe the older brother grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed his younger brother multiple times.
Veronica Hayes, who lives upstairs from the apartment, said the younger brother came pounding on her door and asking her to call for help. She called 911 as he rested on her couch, bleeding.
Hayes said that her mother tried her best to stop the bleeding.
She said that the younger brother is a man named Zach London, 22, and that his older brother is Josh London, who is a few years older. She believes they had been arguing about music.
Emergency responders arrived on the scene not long after 6 p.m. to find the younger brother had five wounds, most of which were superficial, Valencia said. However, one of the attacks punctured the man's chest, he added.
The younger brother was taken to Davis Hospital and Medical Center in Layton to make sure the knife did not puncture his lung, Valencia added.
None of his wounds are life-threatening, the sergeant said.
Police also pulled over the older brother, who had left the scene in a vehicle, "a couple blocks" from the apartment and took him into custody, Valencia said. He added that the older brother is being cooperative.
Police believe the only other witness to the crime was a female, who was not identified. But she was in a back room of the apartment at the time and only came out after hearing a commotion to see the result of the stabbing, Valencia said.
The Davis County Sheriff's Office assisted Clearfield police with the scene of the stabbing.
Neighbors who live across the street and in the building east of the apartments, who were home at the time of the attack, did not recall hearing anything and didn't realize anything was wrong until the ambulance came rushing down the street.
