ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) —  An arrest has been made in Rochester after two people were seriously injured in a stabbing on Friday.

The Rochester Police Department says that 28-year-old city resident Shakeem Lewis has been charged with two different degrees of assault for the incident. 


Police had responded to Stratford Park around 10 p.m. on Friday for a report of a stabbing. At about the same time, two men with stabbed wounds arrived at St. Mary's Care Center by a private vehicle. Police arrived there to find a 29-year-old man and a 30-year-old man both with at least one stab wound, including a stabbing in the neck in the case of the 29-year-old. The two men were transported from St. Mary's Care Center to URMC for treatment, where both men are still in critical condition but expected to survive.

Lewis was taken to booking and arraigned at Rochester City Court.
