A young man was hospitalized Sunday after a vicious attack.

Mesa County Sheriff's deputies responded rapidly to a home in the 1600 block of P Road near Fruita at around 4:30 Sunday afternoon.

The unidentified 19 year old male was rushed to Saint Mary's Hospital with what authorities say was a stab wound in the stomach.

The condition of the victim is unknown at this time.

Sheriff's deputies believe that just before the attack, the victim was involved in an argument with a seventeen year old man, who law enforcement caught up with and arrested.

The identities of both the victim and attacker have not been released at this time.

And police have not specified what charges if any, the teen in custody will face.
