A Cleveland firefighter was arrested Friday night accused of stabbing a woman twice outside of a bar.
The incident occurred around 9:10 p.m. in the parking lot of a bar located on E. 25th Street near St. Clair after an argument over a truck, according to the police report.
The suspect, Victor Lewis, allegedly cut the female victim on her upper left arm and left thigh with a folding pocket knife.
Larry Gray, Cleveland Fire Dept. Public Information Officer, confirmed that Lewis is a member of the Cleveland Fire Department.
Police said they retrieved the knife from Lewis’ pocket during a pat down and it contained dried blood on the handle.
Lewis was taken into custody on a felonious assault charge.
The victim was transported by ambulance to MetroHealth Medical Center and is expected to be okay.
