A stabbing early Thursday appears to have stemmed from a domestic dispute, according to initial media reports. The Daily News says the suspect is in custody.
A 28-year-old man was stabbed twice in the head with a screwdriver by his male partner near 132 W. 65th St. outside the home of the Metropolitan Opera, New York City Ballet and the New York Philharmonic following the 5:30 a.m. stabbing, an FDNY spokesman said.
The screwdriver was recovered and the 29-year-old suspect was captured following the domestic dispute, police said.
Update: Martez Stringer, a 29-year-old from the Bronx, was charged with assault and criminal possession of a weapon, according to ABC News. The ABC report says the stabbing occurred inside an apartment on Amsterdam before the victim ran out to the Lincoln Center garage.
