DES MOINES, Iowa — Authorities have issued an arrest warrant for a suspect in the stabbing of another man on the last night of this year’s Iowa State Fair in Des Moines.

The Iowa Department of Public Safety says the warrant for attempted murder names 21-year-old Craig Hunt. No arrest has been reported. Online court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment on Hunt’s behalf.

The Iowa State Patrol says Darquan Jones was attacked around 10:20 p.m. on Aug. 21 near the southwest corner of the Midway. He was taken to a hospital for treatment of two stab wounds and has since been released.
