A parent of a girl involved in a street fight in Akron intervened and began swinging a folding knife, stabbing another adult male in the abdomen, according to Akron police.
Larry Alford, 57, of Madison Avenue in West Akron, was arrested and charged with felonious assault.
The Thursday night incident started with a fight on Madison; police responded about 10:15 after receiving a call about the stabbing.
Two girls were fighting while several other juveniles watched, Akron police said. Some adults intervened, police said.
The 40-year-old man who was stabbed in the abdomen was transported to Cleveland Clinic Akron General Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
A 26-year-old woman received a laceration to her shoulder that did not require additional medical treatment.
Alford had a cut over his eye as a result of being hit with a thrown bottle. Police said it was determined through the investigation the bottle was thrown by the victim as a reaction to being stabbed. Alford was treated at Summa Akron City Hospital. He is in the Summit County Jail.
