LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18)– A bar fight in Lexington left two men injured, and another man behind bars.

It happened just before 11 p.m. at the Malabu Pub and Grill on Surfside Drive. 

Police say a drunken man got into some sort of disagreement with two other men at the bar.

He then used a cane sword to stab one victim in the stomach before stabbing another.

One victim was taken to the hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries. 

The other was treated for minor injuries.

Police say other people at the bar were able to hold down the suspect until officers arrived. 

He’s been charged with two counts of assault.
