Stonington -- A Westerly man was arrested last week after police say he stabbed another man in the neck with a pocket knife during a fight behind a downtown Pawcatuck business.

Both men were taken to the hospital where they were treated for their respective injuries and then released.

Winston Tomlinson, 51, of 8 Gravity St., second floor, was charged with first-degree assault in connection with the July 28 incident behind 15 Liberty St. Tomlinson is being held on a $125,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in New London Superior Court Sept. 28.

Police said the victim also assaulted Tomlinson and they are in the process of obtaining a warrant for his arrest on an assault charge. Police will release his name when he is charged.

Police said that at 9 p.m. on July 28 they were dispatched to a report of a stabbing and found the two men injured. Police declined to say what the pair were fighting about.
