Man Arrested In New Haven Knife Fight

New Haven police are charging a man for his part in a weekend fight outside a city nightspot.

They say the call came in around 11:30 Sunday night.

Firefighters arriving at the corner of Lombard and Ferry Streets to treat an assault victim noticed two men fighting about a block away.  One was armed with a knife.

The say 25-year-old Carlos Santos was fighting with his brother, identified as Sergio Martinez-Suarez.

Santos tried to make a run for it but officers gave chase and caught him.  He was transported to the hospital for treatment of non life-threatening injuries.

A witness says Santos and Martinez-Suarez were intoxicated and looking for a fight.

Santos is facing assault charges.
