Mandan police are investigating a stabbing at the Lonesome Dove Bar.

Mandan police were called to the bar at 1:31 a.m. Thursday to investigate the stabbing, according to a statement from the police department. Responding officers found a 30-year-old Bismarck man on the floor inside the back door. A bar employee was holding multiple towels on the man’s back.

The man had multiple stab wounds and was taken by ambulance to the Sanford Health emergency room. A 38-year-old Bismarck woman was struck in the face by the same people believed to have stabbed the man, and she was treated and released at the scene.

“It is unclear what initiated the attack,” the statement from the police department said.

Sgt. Jay Gruebele said the suspects are both named Ozzy and are believed to be bee haulers. They fueled up a Kenworth with a maroon cab and white sleeper at the Stamart Travel Center in Bismarck at around noon Thursday. The truck is pulling a flatbed trailer.

“They did not put in much fuel, so they may still be in the immediate area loading or unloading,” Gruebele wrote in an email.

He also said the two are believed to be father and son, and the younger one may have a bruised or black eye and superficial cuts on his hands.

Gruebele said police have no information on what direction the truck may be traveling or what kind of license plates are on it.

Witnesses described the suspects as possibly at the bar with a sister to one of them. The men were described as Hispanic.

Surveillance footage is being collected and will be reviewed for a better description of the men and the woman who was with them, the statement said.

Anyone with information about the assaults or the suspects should call the Mandan Police Department at (701) 667-3250.
