Police are investigating a stabbing on Sept. 5, 2019.

Police arrested a Pittsburgh man accused of stabbing a man in the city’s Carrick neighborhood early Thursday, officials said.

Sydney Brown, 23, who lives in Carrick, faces felony charges related to an incident that sent a 22-year-old man to the hospital in critical condition, according to Public Safety spokesman Chris Togneri.

Police responded to a report of a man who was stabbed in the stomach near the 1500 block of Nobles Lane shortly before 2:30 a.m., Togneri said.

Medics took the victim to a nearby hospital.

His condition “was upgraded to stable” by Thursday night, Togneri said. The injured man was not identified.

Brown faces charges of aggravated assault and possessing an instrument of a crime.

Officials did not immediately provide further details.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
