Deputies of the Pima County Sheriff's Department are asking the public for help in identifying a man in connection to a stabbing.

On Oct. 26, deputies were dispatched to the Palo Verde Bar and Grill, 5801 S. Palo Verde Road, to a reported stabbing, said Deputy Courtney Rodriguez, a sheriff's spokeswoman.

When deputies arrived, they found out that a 20-year-old man had been stabbed during an altercation with another man, authorities said.

The assailant left the bar before deputies arrived, said Rodriguez.

The victim was treated by paramedics and taken to a local hospital.

The assailant, who was captured on a surveillance camera, is described as Native American with long dark hair. He is between 20 to 30 years old and is about 5 feet 9 inches tall.

Anyone who has information is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
