One person was charged Sunday in connection with a fight at the West Village Apartments in Ithaca.

Police got a call just after 2 p.m. Sunday of a fight along Abbott Lane in the apartment complex. Police say a man was stabbed at the scene, but refused to be taken to the hospital for treatment, or to help investigators at the scene.

Police were also involved in a foot pursuit to track down Zavierus King, a man wanted for an October 2013 shooting on West Green Street. Police say King was able to get away Sunday, and say he should be considered armed and dangerous.

One suspect at the scene, Yvette King, has been charged with menacing. Police have not detailed the reasons for the charge, but say King was given an order of protection and released.

Ithaca Police say more arrests are possible.
