A 25-year-old city resident faces first-degree assault charges after a knife fight late Sunday at the intersection of Lombard and Ferry streets.

When police arrived around 11:30 p.m., they found a man, later identified as Felix Sanches of Hamden, with a severe laceration to his face.

They also saw two men nearby engaged in a fight.

Carlos Santos, of Gilbert Street, had a knife and was struggling with his brother Sergio Martinez-Suarez, according to a release from New Haven police.

When police intervened, Santos dropped the knife. Then he ran down Ferry Street, the release states, but police soon caught up with him and arrested him.

A witness told police that Santos started the fight, the release states.
