Police: Man stabbed during fight over parking spot in Westchester County

OSSINING, New York (WABC) -- A man is under arrest after he was accused of repeatedly stabbing a 22-year-old over a parking spot in Westchester County on New Year's Day.

Officials said 39-year-old Anthony Acosta was charged with assault after the altercation at the Cortlandt Ridge Apartments in Ossining around 10 p.m.

Acosta allegedly got into a dispute after his girlfriend confronted the victim for parking in their spot, and that's when he repeatedly stabbed the 22-year-old.

The victim underwent surgery at Westchester Medical Center and is expected to survive but may lose his leg because of damage to the blood vessels, officials said.

Acosta arraigned Wednesday morning. Bail set at $50,000 cash or $150,000 bond.
