SALT LAKE CITY -- Police are looking for a homeless man they say used a Chinese throwing star against a husband who was allegedly choking his wife.

Authorities were called about 2 a.m. Sunday to an apartment complex where the couple had been arguing. The fight eventually moved to the complex's parking lot, and police say the husband choked his wife at one point.

Salt Lake City Police Lt. Scott White says a transient who's known by the name "Strange" got involved in the dispute and injured the man in the neck with the throwing star.

White says it's not clear whether the sharp, multi-pointed weapon was thrown or used like a knife.

Police say the husband was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
