Man jailed after stabbing in Evergreen

Posted: Updated:

KALISPELL - A man is behind bars after a Monday evening stabbing in Evergreen.

Flathead County Sheriff Chuck Curry says authorities were told of the incident at around 9:15 p.m. on Monday.

The victim, identified only as a 22-year-old Kalispell man, was found lying along the side of the road in the 1400 block of Montana Highway 35 with a stab wound to the chest, according to Sheriff Curry.

Deputies determined that another male had been seen running from the scene to a nearby convenience store where Blake Samuel Young, 18, was taken into custody.

Sheriff Curry says it appears Young has also been assaulted and he was taken into custody without incident. Young was treated at a local hospital before being booked into the Kalispell jail on a charge with assault with a weapon -- which was later found.

"This has been a very confusing case. Really all of the people involved have been not forthcoming, deceitful or provide conflicting information. So we are working very hard today to find out exactly what occurred," Sheriff Curry said.

 The victim was taken to Kalispell Regional Medical Center and is listed in stable condition after undergoing surgery.
