A Utica man is facing charges following a stabbing on the 800 block of Mohawk Street.

Utica Police were called to St. Elizabeth Medical Center regarding a walk-in stabbing victim.

The victim told officers he was stabbed by a man he knew after the man approached him and began an argument with him.

Police say during the argument, the suspect allegedly pulled a pocket knife and stabbed the victim in the stomach before fleeing.

After reviewing surveillance video and speaking with several witnesses, police arrested 35-year-old Ray Colon-Ortiz and charged him with assault and criminal possession of a weapon.

Police says Colon-Ortiz is a New York State parolee.
