A Utica man is recovering after he told police he had gotten into a fight with a relative.

Police were called to St. Luke's Hospital at 7:45am on Thursday, March 27, 2014 for a report of a stabbing.  The victim said that he and his brother, 43-year old Stephen Bopper Gomolka of Ballantyne Brae, were having a fight that got physical.

The victim said he felt a sharp pain in his chest and saw that he was bleeding.

At the hospital he was found to have a small stab wound in his chest and a punctured lung.

During their investigation at the home Utica Police officers found a pair of scissors believed to have allegedly been used by Stephen Bopper Gomolka.  Sources tell WIBX that Gomolka was a Living Skills Trainer at the Resource Center for Independent Living (RCIL).  (UPDATE: 03/28/2014: 10:56am RCIL says he has not been an employee since 2011.)

He was taken into custody and charged with felony assault in the second degree and criminal possession of a weapon.
