A man was stabbed and another was arrested at a party celebrating a baptism in Redwood City on Saturday night, police said Monday.
Officers responded at 10:21 p.m. Saturday to a report of a fight in progress involving several people at Highland Community Club, located at 1665 Fernside St.
They arrived and detained a suspect armed with a folding pocketknife as well as several other people involved in the altercation.
Police then learned that a stabbing victim had been taken to a hospital.
The victim, a 24-year-old man, was stabbed in his lower abdomen and left forearm. He is expected to survive, according to police.
Investigators believe the victim and the suspect with the knife, later identified as Yazmani Moreno Ramirez, 28, got into an argument on the club's dance floor shortly before the altercation and stabbing.
Ramirez apparently felt the victim had disrespected his wife, police Sgt. Sean Hart said.
Ramirez was booked into San Mateo County Jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, police said.
The other people detained following the altercation were later released, Hart said.
