24 year old Steven Clay is in stable condition at Avera McKennan Hospital.
His mother Patty didn't want to talk on camera, because she fears for her sons life.
She says, last night Steven was in a mobile home park on Rice Street when he started talking with strangers.
In a matter of minutes, Patty says one of the strangers started hitting Steven first with his fists, then a wrench, then a knife.
Tonight, his mother says he's recovering from five stab wounds.
Sioux Falls police are still investigating and won't comment on the alleged stabbing.
