ATLANTIC CITY — A city resident was arrested and charged after stabbing two men Thursday night, police said.
Police arrested Isaac Lowendi, 42, after they said he became intoxicated and stabbed two other men at a residence in the 2000 block of McKinley Avenue.
Police responded to a report of a knife fight Thursday around 11:02 p.m. When they arrived, two men were suffering from stab wounds, and there was a third man, unharmed.
All the men had been inside the house when police said Lowendi became intoxicated. The other men asked him to leave, but he refused.
Lowendi then started an altercation, pulled out a knife and stabbed one of the men, authorities said.
