Webster Police have arrested a man in connection with an early morning stabbing on Krieger Road.

George C. Redington, of Webster, is charged with assault.

Just after 12:30a.m. Tuesday, police say they found a 36-year-old motorcyclist lying on the side of Krieger Road next to his motorcycle, with multiple stab wounds.

They say he tried to drive away after he and the suspect got into a fight in another area of Krieger Road. However, the victim crashed his motorcycle. He was taken to Rochester General Hospital for treatment. Police say both men had knives.

Neighbors say they were shocked to hear about this.

Linda King said, "I was pretty freaked out when I heard that's what had happened was a stabbing. We've had some of those in here, but you know, it's unnerving, I've got to say."

Redington was arraigned and held in the Monroe County Jail on bail. He's due back in court on Friday.
