November 24, 2018

A 40-year-old Garfield man faces four felony charges of aggravated assault after police say he stabbed two coworkers at the Mount Washington bar from which he’d just been fired.

Jaymar Gilbert was fired from his job on Wednesday night at Bigham Tavern on Bigham Street, when he allegedly pulled out a knife and stabbed two employees who were in the midst of firing him, according to Trib news partner WPXI. The victims were taken to local hospitals in serious and critical condition, respectively.

Gilbert faces four counts of aggravated assault, two counts of reckless endangering, and one count each of theft by unlawful taking and possessing instruments of crime.

He is in the Allegheny County Jail on $50,000 bail, and faces a Nov. 8 preliminary hearing before Judge Jeffrey A. Manning.
