Witnesses said that at some point during the altercation, Rivera pulled out a small pocket knife and stabbed McKinney.
Emergency medical services were rendered to McKinney, who was then transported for further treatment. When questioned, Rivera stated that he was “not the victim in this case,” despite claiming he was attacked first and that was why he pulled the knife.

Rivera’s bond was set at $10,000 on the charges.
