Two men were injured in a fight at Knight Library near UCF early Friday morning.

Orange County Sheriff's Officials said deputies were called around 2 a.m. in response to a fight happening outside the bar, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Lt. Paul Hopkins said there were two different fights happening when Orange County Sheriff's Officials got there, both involving the same person.

"[The suspect] got in one fight and punched a man. There were minor injuries that did not require medical treatment," Hopkins said. "Once that fight was over, he goes over to someone else and stabbed him in the eye."

The Sentinel reported the stabbed man was taken to a local hospital where he was treated and released for stab wounds, among other injuries.

The suspect, who was later identified as 26-year-old Manuel Antonia-Cazaro, was arrested and taken to Orange County jail on charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, according to the Sentinel.

Nobody involved was a UCF student, said Courtney Gilmartin, UCF PD public information officer.
