JAMESTOWN – A 23-year-old Jamestown man is facing charges following a stabbing overnight at a local bar. 

Jamestown Police responded to The Wine Cellar, 309 North Main Street, just after 2 a.m. Saturday for a large fight. 

When officers arrived on scene a suspect, later identified as Codie DJ Swartz, was fleeing on foot. 

Swartz is accused of stabbing multiple victims who were involved in the altercation. It appears the victims, police said, only suffered lacerations as a result.  

After a brief foot pursuit Swartz was taken into custody and charged with two counts of second-degree assault, tampering with physical evidence, fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon and second-degree obstructing governmental administration. 

He was taken to Jamestown City Jail and held pending arraignment in the case.
