A Central Islip man was arrested for stabbing a man at a West Hempstead nightclub over the weekend, Nassau County police said.

Kareem Small, 34, got into an altercation with the 29-year-old victim at Rumor’s Night Club on Hempstead Turnpike when the suspect pulled out a black knife and stabbed the victim inside the club at 1:40 a.m. Sunday, police said.

Officers that responded to the scene found the victim outside suffering from a laceration to the right side of his body. The victim was taken to a nearby hospital where he was treated.

Smalls was apprehended as he was seen leaving in a Chevrolet, police said. He was charged with assault and possession of a dangerous weapon.

He will be arraigned Monday at First District Court in Hempstead.
