A man stabbed a woman in the thigh while she was backing away from a brawl that broke out early Friday at Cruze Bar in the Strip District, Pittsburgh police said.

Police arrived at the bar along Smallman Street near the 16th Street Bridge at around 1:05 a.m., after getting a call about the stabbing.

The woman told police she had been trying to get away from a fight among three people when she felt a knife in her upper left thigh. She was taken to UPMC Mercy hospital and reported to be in good condition, police said.

Police identified Deandre Yarbrough, 22, of Perry South, as the person who stabbed her. Yarbrough was charged with aggravated assault and taken to the Allegheny County Jail.

In a separate incident at the same location, police said they arrested a man who got into an argument with the bar owner. Matthew Pressley, 23, of Marshall-Shadeland, was charged with aggravated assault, resisting arrest and public drunkenness.
