That wasn't the only stabbing in the D.C. area over the weekend taking place in close proximity to food. On Saturday morning a separate stabbing led to four arrests in Northern Virginia. Arlington Now reports that a 32-year-old male was found outside Union Jack’s in Arlington with non-life threatening injuries.
