PRESCOTT - A Prescott man remains in stable condition after being stabbed early Monday morning.

At about 1 a.m. Prescott police went to the west side of Granite Creek Park after hearing about a stabbing, according to a Monday news release.

When officers arrived at the scene they discovered the victim, a 46-year-old man, bleeding profusely from two stab wounds. He had been stabbed in the throat and the abdomen, puncturing his liver, police said.

Prescott Fire Department personnel treated the victim at the scene before transporting him to Yavapai Regional Medical Center in Prescott. He was moved to Good Samaritan Hospital in Phoenix later Monday, Lt. Ken Morley said.

As police continued to investigate the incident, they became aware of a possible suspect, Bruce Nahee, 50, of Prescott. Police said they found evidence in the area linking Nahee to the assault.

Yavapai County Sheriff's deputies located Nahee on 6th Street and took him into custody later that morning, according to the release.

Nahee was interviewed by deputies and booked into the Yavapai County jail in Camp Verde on suspicion of attempted homicide, police said.

The incident is still under investigation and Prescott police planned to send an investigator down to interview the victim today, Morley said.

According to police, all parties involved in the incident were believed to be intoxicated at the time.
