NEWS 12 WESTCHESTER: Fight in Yonkers ends in stabbing. (Feb. 11, 2013)

A fight in a Yonkers supermarket Sunday night ended with a man in the hospital with stab wounds, officials said.

Two men got into a fight about 9:20 p.m. inside La More Supermarket at 356 S. Broadway, Yonkers police Det. Lt. Patrick McCormack told Newsday Westchester on Monday.

Police found a 33-year-old Yonkers man with "multiple stab wounds to the torso," McCormack said. The man was brought to a hospital to be treated for nonlife-threatening injuries. Police declined to release the name of the hospital, but emergency responders told News12 he was brought to Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx.

Police at the scene arrested Roberto Trinidad, 28, of 1 Post St. in Yonkers, and charged him with felony first-degree assault, McCormack said. Police recovered the knife used in the stabbing, he said.

It's unknown what caused the fight or whether the men knew each other before Sunday's confrontation, McCormack said.

Neither man was an employee of the store, emergency responders told News12 on Sunday night.

Trinidad remained in the city lockup Monday awaiting arraignment in Yonkers City Court. Officials there did not have any immediate information on his legal representation.

The investigation is continuing, police said.
