Police today arrested a man who is suspected of stabbing another man -- and then himself -- in Wilkinsburg on Tuesday.

County police Lt. Andrew Schurman said police responding to a disturbance on Rebecca Avenue found two men with stab wounds, both of whom were transported to a hospital.

A 33-year-old man, who was not identified, is in critical condition with a wound to the chest. The other man, 23-year-old Chaz Warner, is in stable condition with a wound that detectives believe was self-inflicted after he stabbed the first victim.

Mr. Warner, who is charged with aggravated assault and recklessly endangering another person, is under guard at the hospital until he can be lodged at the Allegheny County Jail.
