MANORVILLE, N.Y. (AP) — Police on Long Island have arrested a Nassau County man accused of stabbing a man in a road rage incident.

Gregory Spina, 43, was charged with second-degree assault and was in custody ahead of a Saturday court appearance.

It was not immediately clear whether he had a defense attorney.

Suffolk County police said the stabbing happened Thanksgiving Day in Manorville.

They said Spina was driving erratically and trying to pass another vehicle.

The 44-year-old driver of that vehicle pulled into a parking lot believing his vehicle had been struck.

Police said Spina also pulled over and stabbed the man once in the abdomen.

The man was seriously injured and taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Police said his wife was in the vehicle as well but wasn’t injured.
