One man is hospitalized and another is behind bars following a stabbing outside of a Cheyenne bar Wednesday night.

Officer Dan Long says police were called to the area of Dey Avenue and West Lincolnway around 8 p.m., after two transients got into an altercation at the Eagle's Nest and the fight moved outside.

"I'm not sure what the actual argument was about, but that's kind of where it started," said Long. "A knife was introduced during the fight and both men incurred injuries."

25-year-old Kendall Stewart was arrested and booked into the Laramie County Detention Center on an aggravated assault charge.

21-year-old Jarred Haftopolus was taken to Cheyenne Regional Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. Criminal charges are currently pending against him.

The case remains under investigation by the Cheyenne Police Department.
