Syracuse police made a pair of arrests in the stabbing of a man early this morning - including the stabbing victim.
Officers responded to a call about a stabbing victim at about 1:10AM on Midland Avenue. They found Vance Britton (photo at right) with stab wounds to his arm and abdomen. He was hospitalized with injuries not believed to be serious. The investigation discovered that Britton had been in a fight earlier with another man at a home on West Corning Street. Police got to that location and arrested Elliot Green (photo at left) for the stabbing of Britton.
Additional information about the incident came to light, as officers learned that a woman living at the home on West Corning had an order of protection against Britton, which police believe led to the stabbing. Police have charged Britton with criminal contempt for violating the protection order. He will be sent to jail after he is released from the hospital.
