SALINA, N.Y. (AP) - Police have charged a 20-year-old man with stabbing two other men during an altercation at a Syracuse-area convenience store.

Zackary Zellar of Liverpool was charged with two counts of second-degree assault and two counts of fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon after the Thursday morning incident.

The Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office says one victim was stabbed in the chin during an argument. The second victim, an employee of the store, was stabbed in the back as he tried to break up the fight.

Both victims were transported to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Zellar fled to nearby Auburn, where he was arrested. He was sent to jail on $50,000 bail.

It could not immediately be determined if he had a lawyer.
