Nassau County police say that Garth L. Blair, 31, of Rosedale was involved in an argument with a 23 year old male victim.  Police say Blair pulled out a knife and stabbed the unnamed victim several times in his chest back and legs.

The victim was rushed to the hospital as was listed in critical but stable condition.
