(ABC 6 News) - Rochester police say a man is facing assault charges after an alleged stabbing early Saturday morning.
Police arrested Fariid Salah, of Rochester, after he allegedly stabbed a man that was trying to escort him out of a home.
They say Salah was found lying unconscious next to a man with stab wounds outside an apartment on the 3700 block of 8th Street N.W.
The victim told police that Salah had over stayed his welcome and that he was walking him out of the apartment when he felt Salah punch his side several times. Police say when the victim realized he had been stabbed, and not punched, he pushed Salah to the ground and knocked him unconscious.
Both men were taken to Saint Marys Hospital. Police say the victim's wounds are non-life threatening.
Salah is facing 2nd degree assault charges.
