Just after 1 a.m. on 12/29/19, TCSO Deputies were called to the Antlers Bar in the 30900 block of Hwy 190 in Springville for a stabbing.
When they arrived, Deputies found the victim in the parking lot with multiple stab wounds. He was life-flighted to an area hospital and is currently listed in stable condition.
Deputies learned the victim and the suspect, 49-year-old John Handford, were fighting when Hanford pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim multiple times. Handford then ran from the scene and is still on the loose. He faces charges of Attempted Murder.
