Ascension Parish sheriff's deputies are seeking the public's help in finding a man who stabbed someone at a Prairieville bar Saturday night.

Arriving sheriff's deputies found people giving aid to the victim, who was suffering from multiple life-threatening stab wounds, shortly after 10 p.m., Sheriff Bobby Webre said.

Sheriff's investigators learned later the man was stabbed during a fight at Mom's Bar off La. 42 near La. 44, Webre said in a statement Tuesday.

The man, who was taken to an area hospital, is expected to recover from his injuries, deputies said.

The accused assailant fled the scene and is described as a white man, approximately 5 feet, 6 inches tall, with a stocky build and brown hair.
