HOBOKEN – A man was arrested Tuesday night after a pedestrian was stabbed during a quarrel at 14th Street and Shipyard Lane, said Sgt. Mike Costello.

According to reports, a couple was walking in the area just after 8 p.m. when a Lincoln Navigator turned the corner.

The male pedestrian – who claimed that the SUV almost ran the couple down – banged on the truck as it passed.

The SUV stopped and the pedestrian walked over and exchanged words with the driver, who then pulled out an 8-inch hunting knife and stabbed the man in the chest, Costello said.

The SUV’s owner, Brian Riccioni, 36, of Independence Court, was arrested at his home on assault and weapons charges, Costello said.

The victim was taken to the hospital, where he received 10 stitches and was released that same day, Costello said.
