A Copiague man was charged with assault after police said he stabbed someone in a fight Saturday outside a house party in North Massapequa.

Around 10:30 p.m., Nassau police said, Dieon L. Harris, 21, swung a 3.5-inch blade at a 27-year-old male on North Nassau Avenue, wounding him in the upper torso.

The victim, who was not identified, was taken to Nassau University Medical Center in East Meadow, where he was treated and released, officials said.

The violence stemmed from an argument at a house party that Harris was asked to leave, authorities said.

Harris was charged with second-degree assault, a felony, and misdemeanor weapons possession, according to a Nassau police news release. He was scheduled to be arraigned Sunday at First District Court in Hempstead.
