DARTMOUTH, Mass. (WPRI) — A Connecticut man was arrested after a stabbing in Dartmouth Saturday night.

Just after midnight, police were called to the Residence Inn on Faunce Corner Road for a reported disturbance.

When they arrived, they found that a 30-year-old man from Connecticut had been stabbed during an earlier altercation with a coworker. Both the victim and suspect were part of a work crew staying at the hotel.

The suspect then took off from the scene after the incident.

The victim was taken to Rhode Island Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

During their investigation, police were able to identify the suspect as Tyreke Brooks, 26, of Manchester, Conn.

Around 8 a.m., police learned that Brooks had returned to the Residence Inn. Officers went to the hotel and arrested him without incident.

Brooks, who was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, also had two outstanding warrants for his arrest.
