Rochester Police have arrested two men in connection to a deadly stabbing on North Street Saturday morning.

According to police, 24-year-old Bradford Clark and 36-year-old Shain Maldonado are both charged with second degree murder. Both are city residents.

Investigators say around 3:50 a.m. Saturday they responded to Sobieski Street for a report of a man stabbed. Police say they found a 19-year-old man who had been stabbed in his chest. Shortly after that call, police received another call for a 32-year-old man stabbed multiple times on North Street.

Police say both victims were at a party on North Street when an argument broke out. The argument escalated into a fight, and during that fight both victims were stabbed.

The 32-year-old man, Lee Probst, was taken to Rochester General Hospital where he later died.

The 19-year-old victim, Hermes Almodovar, was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital. He is currently in satisfactory condition.

Police say additional charges for Almodovar's injuries are expected.

Clark and Maldonado will be arraigned in Rochester City Court on Monday morning.
