SOMERS, N.Y. - A 23-year-old Yorktown man is facing a felony assault charge after police say he stabbed another man in the parking lot of a Somers bar.
James P. Nardella is accused of stabbing a 28-year-old Mahopac man outside of P.J.'s Bar around 5 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 17, according to New York State Police. Following a verbal argument, which started in the bar and moved outside, police say Nardella pulled out a knife and stabbed the Mahopac man, who suffered non-life threatening wounds to his torso, hip and arm.
Police were called to the bar, but Nardella allegedly left the scene before officers arrived. He was arrested the following day at his Yorktown Heights home, according to police.
He was charged with first-degree assault, a B felony, and was arraigned at Somers Justice Court. He was sent to Westchester County Jail in lieu of $25,000 cash bail.
