Jeremiah Cox, 24, was booked on attempted homicide, aggravated assault and possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person after he allegedly stabbed a patron at Crown Billiard's, 1295 S. State, Clearfield.
A second man, Sean McKinney, also 24, was booked on charges of obstructing justice.
Clearfield Assistant Police Chief Greg Krusi said witnesses reported the two suspects entered the business around 8 p.m.
While there, one of the suspects began flirting with a female patron. Later, as the suspects were leaving the business, Krusi said, they saw the stabbing victim speaking with the female the suspect had been flirting with. Witnesses told police that Cox then attacked the 19-year-old victim, stabbing him in the face with a knife. Witnesses tried to stop the attack and the suspects fled on foot.
The victim was taken to Davis Hospital and Medical Center in Layton, where emergency room personnel told officers the victim was very lucky to be alive given the injury. The victim was released from the hospital Friday morning, but will have to have plastic surgery at a later date, Krusi said.
Cox is being held in the Davis County Jail on $25,000 bail. McKinney was being held on $5,000 bail.
Krusi said the case is still under investigation and additional charges may be filed.
