Man Stabbed To Death Near Little League Field During Game

Posted: Updated:

BABYLON, N.Y. (AP) — A man is charged with manslaughter after a fatal stabbing near a Little League field where kids were playing on New York's Long Island.

Suffolk County police say a fight broke out Saturday between two men in Babylon. WABC-TV reports that one of the men interrupted the game to tell people he was hurt. He died at a hospital a short time later.

Police say a witness alerted an off-duty officer and the officer and bystanders apprehended the suspect as he tried to flee. Authorities say the fight wasn't related to the baseball game.

Twenty-year-old Michael Grusel was arrested in the death of James Moran. Grusel is to be arraigned in Central Islip on Sunday.

The police activity prompted the Little League to cancel Saturday's games.
