Cops: Three charged after steak knife assault in Massapequa

Cops: Three charged after steak knife assault in Massapequa, Three men from Massapequa were arrested Saturday after an argument between the men escalated with one brandishing a knife and stabbing the other two, Nassau County police said Sunday.

The initial incident started at 1:40 a.m. on Saturday when Kaleb Fink, 18, of 16 Frankel Road became entangled in a verbal argument on the phone with James Theoharides, 20, of 14 Cedar Drive, police said.

According to detectives, Theoharides showed up to Fink’s home at 3 a.m., and demanded that he come outside. Fink allegedly grabbed a steak knife and went outside to approach Theoharides. The two men then began to fight, police said.

As they were fighting, police said another man, Ian Walsh, 19, of 11 Harbour Lane, exited a vehicle and punched Fink in the face. Fink, still waving the knife, struck Theoharides and Walsh in the arm and stomach with the steak knife, causing non-life-threatening injuries, said police.

All of the men fled from the scene, including Fink, who went home to sleep, police said. When he awoke several hours later, he called police, according to detectives. An investigation ensued and all three men were arrested at their homes.

Fink was charged with two counts of second-degree assault and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon. Theoharides and Walsh were each charged with third-degree assault. Walsh was also found to have an open bench warrant in Nassau County stemming from a charge of facilitating aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, police said.

The three were due to be arraigned Sunday at First District Court in Hempstead. As of this writing, bail information was not available.
