It seems someone was fed after midnight...
There was a bloody scene at an Eloy bar over the weekend, thanks to a guy with the nickname "Gremlin," who authorities say stabbed another bar patron during a New Year's morning brawl.
Cops got a call about 2:30 a.m. on Saturday about a large brawl going on inside Eddies Bar at 6365 East Camino Adelante in Eloy .
When Pinal County sheriff's deputies got to the scene, they watched several people run from the bar. Witnesses told the deputies that someone inside had been stabbed.
When they got inside, officers found a blood bath (pictured). The victim, 40, had a cloth wrapped around his hand and arm, and was still bleeding heavily. He told the cops a few guys tried to "jump his friend" and he tried to intervene.
He told cops he was sucker punched before getting stabbed in the arm by "Gremlin."
The victim was taken to an area hospital where he's expected to recover from his injuries.
"Gremlin" is still on the loose. He's described as a Hispanic male about 5-foot-6, with short black hair. He was last seen wearing a red shirt with a gray hood.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Pinal County Sheriff's Office.
