SARANAC LAKE — A 20-year-old arrested after a fight on Main Street here has been released from Franklin County Jail.
District Attorney Derek Champagne’s office confirmed that Carlos Bonet of Saranac Lake was placed under the supervision of the Franklin County Probation Department.
Saranac Lake Village Court records show Bonet was released with a Global Positioning Satellite ankle monitor.
Bail was originally set at $15,000 cash or $30,000 bond. But the court rescinded bail requirements at an appearance on Aug. 15, opting for electronic monitoring.
Bonet was charged Aug. 10 with second-degree assault for stabbing another man in a fracas outside Wilson Farms, across from the Harrietstown Hall, at about 2 a.m.
Police said the victim was cut in the neck with a pocket knife during a fight.
Initial reports indicated a 6-inch laceration sent the unnamed victim to Adirondack Medical Center.
Police Chief Bruce Nason said the Police Department does not release victims’ names and would not identify the injured man or say how or why that person was involved in the brawl.
“This incident that occurred is related to drugs, and the people that were present were familiar with each other,” Nason said when asked Monday for an update on the case.
Six people were there when police arrived.
Others may have fled on foot, the chief said, but the fight — and what spawned the violence on Main Street — remained under investigation on Monday.
“We are still in the process of gathering information through interviews and video to determine how many people were present when the altercation began,” he said.
Persons involved in the early morning clash ranged in age from 20 to 37, according to police records.
No further arrests had yet been made in connection with the incident.
In addition to felony assault, Bonet was charged with criminal possession of a weapon, according to police.
Bonet is scheduled to reappear in Village Court at 4 p.m. Sept. 10.
