A stabbing on Buffalo’s West Side resulted in the arrest late Saturday night of a Niagara Falls man.

Steven L. Fowler, 35, was charged with assault in connection with the stabbing of Leroy L. Twitty in the 200 block of Massachusetts Avenue earlier in the day.

Buffalo police said Twitty, a Town of Tonawanda resident, was stabbed in the chest with a knife that was later recovered by investigators. Twitty was listed in serious condition Sunday in Erie County Medical Center.

Fowler was arrested inside a residence on Massachusetts Avenue shortly after the stabbing, police said.
