Police: Bystander fatally stabbed in Batavia
BATAVIA, N.Y. (AP) — Police say a bystander who tried to break up a fight in a small city in western New York was fatally stabbed early Saturday.
WIVB-TV reports Michael Paladino heard a man and woman fighting on a sidewalk in Batavia and intervened.
Police said Quinton Edmonds of Rochester fatally stabbed the 43-year-old and left the scene.
Paladino was found bleeding in the entryway of an apartment building and pronounced dead at a local hospital.
Edmonds, 31, was later taken into custody on a second-degree murder charge and expected to appear in court Saturday.
It was not immediately clear whether he had an attorney.
