RIMROCK, Ariz. (AP) -- Yavapai County authorities have arrested a suspect in last week's stabbing of a man at a Rimrock bar.

They say 30-year-old Jonathan Perez-Vidal is being held on a $50,000 bond at the Camp Verde Detention Center.

He was arrested at his home in Rimrock.

Sheriff's officials say Perez-Vidal told investigators that he got upset when he saw the man speaking with his wife last Thursday.

The 38-year old victim was bleeding from his chest and one of his knees when police arrived on scene of the stabbing about 1:45 a.m. Friday at the McGuireville Tavern in Rimrock.

The man was airlifted to a Flagstaff hospital for treatment and was released Sunday.

Sheriff's officials haven't disclosed the man's name, but he told authorities that he didn't know Perez-Vidal or his wife.
