Police said a "minor disagreement" led to two people being stabbed in Auburn Saturday.

First responders were called just after 1:30 p.m. to the east side of the Mill Street dam for a report that at least three people had been stabbed.

Two victims were found at the scene, police said — one with a stab wound to the chest and another with a serious cut to the hand. A third person was grazed but uninjured.

The suspect in the attacks, Jon Hewitt, of Auburn, was found by officers in the general vicinity of the incident and taken into custody.

Police said that Hewitt had a minor disagreement with someone at the dam Saturday and threatened to stab him. Moments later, police said, Hewitt pulled out a knife, stabbed two people and tried to stab a third.

All of the victims were treated at ACH and released, police said.

Police said that Hewitt, of 38 Burt Ave. Apt. 3, was taken to Auburn Community Hospital for a medical evaluation and then released into the custody of officers. He was then charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault, second-degree attempted assault and third-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

Hewitt was being held at the Auburn Police Department Saturday night awaiting arraignment.

Investigators are still looking for more information on the incident and ask anyone with details to call detectives at (315) 258-9880 or (315) 253-3231. Police said that callers may remain anonymous.
