A man stabbed Friday night at the Wal-Mart off Russell Cave Road was in fair condition Saturday.
Anthony G. Peel was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital after he was injured in a fight that broke out in the store.
Peel was stabbed multiple times, including at least once in both arms and in the chest, according to police Lt. J.J. Lombardi. The weapon, a knife, was recovered at the scene. Lombardi said he didn't know what the argument was about.
An off-duty Lexington police officer who was working security at the Wal-Mart intervened.

One man, Xavimen C. Decquir, 22, was arrested Friday and charged with second-degree assault, a felony. He was being held in the Fayette County Detention Center on Saturday night on $7,500 full cash bond.
Police initially suspected another man of taking part in the stabbing and questioned customers as the store was evacuated. Police decided the man was not involved in the fight and let him go, Lombardi said. Afterward, they determined he was wanted on outstanding warrants out of Illinois.
