A dispute over a woman has led to one man being treated for a stabbing or slashing wound on his left cheek, and another man running from the law.

Sergeant Colin Rose with the Missoula Police Department says the dispute took place just after midnight outside a Missoula tavern in the 300 block of North Higgins. The victim was treated and released from St. Patrick Hospital.

The suspect is described as a while male in his 50's wearing Carnarrt pants and jacket with orange stripes. The suspect also wears glasses.

Rose is asking anyone with information to contact Crimestoppers at 721-44-44.
