Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

PROVIDENCE, R.I. Police have confronted two knife-wielding men and forced them to drop their weapons in recent days.

Early Saturday morning, police found 58-year-old Nelson Valdez bleeding from a stab wound to his chest.

Valdez said he had been stabbed on a nearby street.

Working on a tip from a neighbor, officers found the suspect, 56-year-old Marino Cepeda, in a backyard, as he stepped from a car with a large knife in his hand.

Officers ordered Cepeda to drop the knife, which he eventually did.

In a separate incident on Friday morning, the police arrested another man carrying a knife, after a fight broke out near Club Ultra on Pine Street.

Twenty-five-year-old Sean Sutton of Groton, Connecticut, dropped the knife after police ordered him to do so at gunpoint.
