A 22-year-old North Babylon man was arrested Saturday after allegedly stabbing a Huntington man six times in the back.
Michael Laffey, 25, of Huntington is recovering at a Bay Avenue home as a result of the 2:45 a.m. incident Saturday on Green Street in Huntington, according to his father, Peter Laffey.
Christopher Scott, 22, of Elkton Lane in North Babylon was arrested and charged with second degree assault, according to a Suffolk County police public information officer.
Scott remains in custody at the Suffolk County Jail, according to Det. Lt. Thomas O'Heir of the Suffolk County Police Department.
O'Heir said the incident involved a three-on-three altercation between two groups of men near Main Street — the victim's father's gave a different description of the incident.
"Basically they bumped into each other outside of the bar, they had some words, (my son) tried to disengage then they pursued him," said Peter Laffey.
Michael Laffey, a Huntington High School graduate and former lacrosse player at the school, was treated at Good Samaritan Hospital, according to police.
Police said Laffey suffered non-life-threatening injuries. O'Heir said he was "only aware of the one serious stab wound."
The victim's father said police have yet to talk to his son regarding the incident.
Police denied a request to release Scott's mugshot because of what they say is an ongoing investigation.
Scott suffered a cut on his finger during the incident.
