Two men stabbed at bar in Fargo

FARGO – Two men were stabbed at Speck’s Bar here around 2 a.m. Saturday.

The two victims were at the bar with Jason Pederson, 38, of Fargo, when a disagreement turned into a pushing fight and Pederson pulled out a knife, said Lt. Joel Vettel of Fargo Police.

The incident happened shortly after the bar closed, and alcohol was a factor, Vettel said.

The victims sustained stab wounds. One was transported to the hospital for treatment while the other left the scene on his own.

Pederson was found driving away from the scene. He was arrested for two counts of aggravated assault and driving under the influence, after witnesses and the victims confirmed he was the suspect, Vettel said.
