Police: 2 men stabbed outside Rhode Island bar

September 11, 2019

WARWICK, R.I. (AP) — Police say five people are facing charges in connection with a double stabbing outside a Rhode Island bar.

Officers responding to the All Stars Bar and Grill in Warwick at about 1:15 a.m. Wednesday found the victims in the parking lot with stab wounds to the neck and torso.

Both were taken to Rhode Island Hospital in Providence and were stabilized.

Their names were not released.

Police say 35-year-old John Decarlo, of New York City, faces charges including two counts of assault with intent to commit murder.

Decarlo’s attorney says his client is a New York City firefighter and an honorably discharged Marine.

Four other men, all Rhode Island residents, were charged with disorderly conduct.

Decarlo was held on $50,000 bond at his arraignment. He did not enter a plea.
