SALT LAKE CITY — Police say two security guards were stabbed early Sunday morning after escorting a patron out of a downtown Salt Lake City bar.

One of the men had wound to his back and the other to his stomach.

Police say the suspect was being kicked out because he had been in a fight with other patrons inside the bar.

The guards were in stable condition and expected to recover.

The suspect fled in a silver sedan.
