MANDAN, N.D. - Mandan police are continuing to investigate a stabbing outside a bar late Saturday night.

Sgt. Jay Gruebele said police responded to a report of a fight in progress at the Moscow Bar shortly before midnight.

Gruebele said Jace Renville, 23, of Bismarck, reported being assaulted by two men outside of the bar on Main Street.

Witnesses to the fight fled the scene when police arrived, police said.
