An 18-year-old man was arrested last night during a high school football game after police say he tried to cut the face of a juvenile with a knife in the Central Parklet.

Stephon Brooks, who has no known address, was charged with aggravated assault and recklessly endangering another person after police say he pulled knife on a juvenile during an argument.

The victim told police Brooks attempted to “cut his face,” during a fight around 9 p.m.

The victim grabbed the hand that was holding the knife, causing a cut on Brooks hand, too, police said.

The knife was found at the scene, police said.

Brooks was arraigned by District Judge Leslie Dutchcot and was placed in jail on $250,000 cash bail.
