Fight spurred stabbing at Fox Chapel Yacht Club, cops say
An argument early Sunday near the Fox Chapel Yacht Club left one man in jail and another with multiple stab wounds, according to police.
Christopher Schmeider, of Etna, faces two counts of aggravated assault in the incident.
Police and paramedics responded about 3:15 a.m. to the yacht club, which is along the Allegheny River in O’Hara. A 30-year-old man had been stabbed in both arms, according to the criminal complaint.
The man told police he got into a fight with a “drunk man” who had a red beard and was wearing a multi-colored shirt, according to the complaint. The suspect, later identified as Schmeider, is accused of stabbing the man and taking off.
Police began searching the area, and an officer spotted a man matching Schmeider’s description walking on a nearby road, according to the complaint. He was taken into custody and identified by a witness as the man who stabbed the other man.
Schmeider, 28, was treated for injuries by EMS and taken to the Allegheny County Jail.
The unidentified man was taken to a hospital and treated for non life-threatening injuries.
