Police have made an arrest in the deadly stabbing of a man at a Bay Ridge bar.
Authorities have arrested 43-year-old Maurice Hartridge from the Bronx for stabbing 37-year-old Daryl Dawkins to death. They say it all happened as he was outside the Catch 22 bar.
Hartridge is charged with manslaughter and criminal possession of a weapon. He's accused of fatally stabbing Dawkins in the chest just before 3 a.m. on April 7.
Police say Dawkins had been in the bar earlier that night, but the details surrounding why he was stabbed are still not confirmed.
According to the NYPD, Dawkins lived in Pennsylvania.
At a recent Community Board 10 meeting, board members say they have met with Catch 22 before about issues in the past. This included an incident in June, when they requested that the bar close earlier.
Hartridge has since pled not guilty to these charges. He's due back in court on Friday.
