Man Wanted in Stabbing During Giant East End Melee

Calverton (WALK) - A Riverhead man is now a fugitive from the law after he allegedly knifed another man outside a nightclub early Sunday morning, according to Riverhead Town Police.

They're searching for Demetris Brown, 22, after the incident in the parking lot of Cinco de Mayo on Middle Country Road in Calverton. Police who arrived at the club around 3:30 AM Sunday after getting a 911 call found an unruly crowd of 75 to 100 people engaged in a giant brawl. One man was found to have a stab wound and was rushed by ambulance to Peconic Bay Medical Center.

Police say the club had just hosted a "90s Style Old School Hip-Hop R&B" party when the melee broke out. The fighting also carried over into the street and the parking lot of the FedEx building across the street, but no other serious injuries were reported.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of the suspect or the brawl outside Cinco de Mayo is asked to contact Riverhead Town Police at (631) 727-4500 ext. 328.
