YUMA, Ariz. (13 On Your Side) – Deputies have identified two men involved in an all-out fight that led to a stabbing at the river last Sunday.

A witness captured the brawl on his cell phone.

13 On Your Side also learned the victim who suffered life-threatening stab wounds and is being treated at the hospital may also be a suspect.

Sheriff's deputies aren't saying much about why the one man stabbed is now a potential suspect.

But they do say investigators believe he could face charges.

They are not releasing his name at this time, but they are releasing the names of two other men involved.

Deputies are now looking for Jesse Ramirez and Matthew Jimenez who goes by the nickname of "Sapo."

Ramirez is 25 years old, about 6 feet tall, 180 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.

Jimenez is 26 years old, about 5'6", 150 pounds, also with brown hair and brown eyes.

The witness, who wishes to remain anonymous and captured the fight on his cellphone, says the fight started between one man and one woman.

Then it escalated as more and more people got involved.

They say one guy went to his car, pulled out what appeared to be a shotgun and fired it a couple times.

Deputies tell us they also got ahold of the cell phone footage—and that's when they were able to identify Jesse Ramirez and Matthew Jimenez.

Right now, the brawl is still under investigation.

Again, deputies want to talk to Jimenez and Ramirez.

If you know their whereabouts or have any information about this investigation you are urged to call the Yuma County Sheriff's Office or 78-CRIME to remain anonymous.
