Man accused of stabbing at Olean bar

OLEAN, N.Y. (WIVB) – A search prompted a partial lockdown at Olean High School Thursday, because the suspect lives two blocks from the school. Olean Police say they arrested 34-year-old Khuong M. Nguyen at 1:15 p.m.

Nguyen is accused of stabbing 48-year-old Joseph Gilroy in his head and his back. The alleged assault happened at a West State Street bar, early Thursday morning.

Nguyen was arrested for second-degree assault and was held at the Olean city lockup.
