A third man was arrested Monday in connection with a brawl in Kingston last week in which two people were stabbed.

Tau C. McBean, 34, of Kingston, was charged with assault in the first degree, a felony, for his role in a March 4 fight on Cedar Street, according to a Kingston police statement.

Previously arrested in the altercation were Darell Grosvenor, 19, and Lenox Peters, 18, both of Kingston. They were each charged on March 8 with assault in the first degree and gang assault in the first degree, a felony.

Two people were stabbed in the fight, one of whom was treated and released at a hospital, said Kingston Police Lt. Thierry Croizer, who didn't have information on the second victim.

The fight remains under investigation, Croizer said Tuesday.

McBean, who was on federal probation for narcotics-related charges, was being held Tuesday morning at the Kingston Police Department, where he was awaiting arraignment.

Grosvenor and Peters remain in custody at Ulster County Jail, a city court clerk said Tuesday morning. Grosvenor is being held in lieu of $75,000 bail or $150,000 bond, while Peters is being held on $100,000 bail or $250,000 bond.

Attorneys could not be reached Tuesday for Grosvenor or Peters.
