SANTA ROSA (CBS SF) — A man was arrested after allegedly stabbing another man four times at a bar in Santa Rosa Saturday night, police said.

Officers responded to a report of a fight between two patrons at the Wagon Wheel Saloon, located at 3320 Mendocino Ave., at about 9:35 p.m., police said.

An investigation revealed that Donald Lee Mastroianni, 53, of Santa Rosa, was drunk and threw a beer bottle at a female bartender, police said.

Brian Teager, 52, of Santa Rosa, came to the aid of the bartender, and Mastroianni came at him with a knife, stabbing him four times – three in the leg, one in the hand, according to police.
