RIMROCK, Ariz. — Yavapai County authorities say a man had to be airlifted
to a Flagstaff hospital after he was stabbed at a bar.
Yavapai County Sheriff’s spokesman Dwight D’Evelyn said deputies responded
Friday around 1:45 a.m. to the McGuireville Tavern in Rimrock and found a man
bleeding from the chest and a knee.
D’Evelyn said the 38-year-old Cottonwood man alleged that a man he didn’t know
stabbed him without provocation.
Deputies said they conducted first aid until the man was transported to Verde
Valley Medical Center.
D’Evelyn said the victim was then flown to Flagstaff Medical Center.
Witnesses told investigators a man who had a knife fled the area.
D’Evelyn said detectives expect to make an arrest soon but did not release any
details about a possible suspect.
