BEMIDJI, Minn. - Police in Bemidji are looking for a suspect who stabbed a teenager at a large party on property owned by a fraternity.
Beltrami County sheriff's deputies say 18-year-old Jace Ugrich, of Bovey, was stabbed early Sunday when he tried to intervene in a fight between two males at the party. Ugrich was taken to Sanford Bemidji Medical Center where he's in stable condition in the intensive care unit Monday.
Sheriff's officials say Ugrich was stabbed in the back by an unknown suspect. They are seeking to interview two persons of interest: a white male, 5-11 to 6-1 in height with a skinny build, wearing a dark sweatshirt and a black baseball cap on backward with the word "Dope" in a light color on the front; and a white male approximately 5-11 to 6-1 in height with light colored hair wearing a red hoodie sweatshirt.
Deputies were dispatched shortly before 1 a.m. Sunday to intercept a vehicle transporting Ugrich to the hospital. Deputies rendered aid until an ambulance arrived.
