CONGRESS, Ariz. (AP) -- Authorities are searching for a Yavapai County man suspected of stabbing his brother with a hunting knife.

The Yavapai County Sheriff's Office says 24-year-old Anthony Lamon Jr. was last seen Friday at a Phoenix hospital, where his grandmother is being treated.

Sheriff's spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn says authorities were called to a home in Congress and found the suspect's 22-year-old brother bleeding.

The victim had been stabbed in the back and slashed in the left arm. D'Evelyn says he has since been released from the hospital.

According to deputies, Lamon fled the scene.

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office says Lamon was spotted at the Phoenix hospital but took off when approached by security.

Lamon is believed to be driving a white 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
