A 65-year-old man is under arrest after police say he stabbed a man in Brooklyn Sunday morning.

It happened on Rochester Avenue in Crown Heights at around 8:30 a.m.

Police say Viera Rodriguez got into an argument with the victim, then ran into an apartment, grabbed a knife and slashed him on the face and wrist.

A witness said she first they saw the suspect wielding a knife and then noticed the victim bleeding.

"He was bad. He was bad off," said one person at the scene. "He was really cut. He was really, really, really hurt, really bad. All we could have done is just call the cops for him."

The victim was taken to Kings County Hospital and is now in stable condition. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
