VALLEY STREAM, N.Y. – A Long Island security guard at a movie theater in Valley Stream has been arrested for stabbing a moviegoer, police said.
Police said the security guard, Ricardo Singh, 24, was directing patrons to exit the theater after a showing of "My Bloody Valentine in 3D" when he got into an argument with a 16-year-old who wanted to wait inside for his ride.
The argument escalated into pushing and shoving and Singh allegedly took out a folding knife and stabbed the teenager in the stomach, police said.
The victim was taken to Winthrop University Hospital where he received six stitches to close the wound. The security guard was arrested and charged with assault.
