A Central Islip man was arrested early Monday morning after he stabbed another Central Islip man in the neck with a broken beer bottle, police said.
According to police, Reginald Bonelli, 29, became involved in a physical altercation with a 23-year-old man while they were visiting the home of a mutual friend at 173 Powell Ave in Central Islip, police said.
