A second and third suspect have been arrested in connection with the stabbing of two employees at a Five Points bar over the weekend.
Columbia police say 30-year-old Benjamin Geno and 33-year-old Jason Skaggs are charged with second-degree assault and battery by mob.
Both turned themselves in Tuesday, one day after 38-year-old Stewart Ard did the same.
Ard is charged with first- and second-degree assault, plus battery by mob.
Police accuse him of stabbing two male employees at the Group Therapy bar on Greene Street shortly before 1 a.m. Sunday.
Investigators say Ard, Geno and Skaggs were asked to leave because of bad behavior, but they later returned and attacked the employees.
Geno (pictured above) is accused of punching one victim in the head just before the stabbings and a second victim afterward.
Both victims were taken to a hospital where medical staff advised that their injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.
Police say Ard tried to stab two more people who ran after him.
A fourth suspect has been questioned in the case, but police do not expect to charge him.
