SARANAC LAKE — A fight involving a knife ended with stitches for one man and arrest for another.
Saranac Lake Village Police responded to an altercation on Main Street at 2:20 a.m. Friday, where a group of people had gathered outside a local business, with two involved in a fight, said Chief Bruce Nason.
“One guy got cut,” he said.
Police arrested Carlos Bonet, 20, of Saranac Lake, charging him with second-degree assault, a felony; and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon.
The other man suffered a 6-inch-or-so laceration on his neck, police said, that required sutures.
Bonet was arraigned and taken to Franklin County Jail in lieu of $15,000 bail or $30,000 bond.
The incident appeared to be drug-related, Nason said.
He said the investigation was continuing and didn’t rule out other possible arrests.
