(ABC 6 News) - A Rochester man, who was arrested in connection with a fight that left one man with stab wounds to his face, has been released from custody.

Rochester Police say prosecutors declined to press charges against Adam Smith after he was arrested early Monday morning. 

Authorities say there wasn't enough evidence to charge Smith with second degree assault since it could have been in self-defense.

Three others were ticketed during the incident for disorderly conduct.
