COLUMBIA — Police arrested Jason Guevera of 1707 Nelwood Drive in connection with the stabbing of a 22-year-old Columbia man during a party Sunday night in north Columbia.

The victim remains hospitalized with nonlife-threatening injuries.

Police said the two men were at a party at 1705 Nelwood Drive when they got into a fight. Police said the suspect had been drinking.

The suspect left the party, then returned with a knife and stabbed the victim, police said.

Capt. Brad Nelson of the Columbia Police Department said there were about 10 people at the apartment at the time.

Guevera is charged with first-degree assault and armed criminal action.

Guevera has two outstanding warrants outside Missouri. Both are from San Antonio, Texas. One is for a misdemeanor charge of driving while intoxicated, and the other is for endangering the welfare of a child, Nelson said.

Police are asking that anyone with information about the incident call CrimeStoppers at 875-8477. The call is anonymous, and callers might be eligible for a reward of up to $1,500 if the information leads to an arrest.
