A Beaufort man was stabbed twice in the chest over the weekend in a nightclub parking lot.

It happened Saturday night at the Los Cocos nightclub on OK Street in Kinston. Jonathan Quinterio was twice stabbed in the chest and abdomen area. He's now at Pitt County Memorial Hospital in stable condition.

Deputies say their investigation showed an argument preceded the stabbing, and a security guard was able to detain the suspect until deputies arrived.

They have charged Arturo Barajas of New Bern with assault with a deadly weapon, inflicting serious injury.

Investigators say the two men had known each other briefly and had argued prior to arriving at the club.

Barajas is in the Lenoir County jail on a $15,000 bond.
