A city man was arrested after he allegedly stabbed a man in the abdomen during an argument, court documents stated.

Khalil Andrew Daniels-­Murphy, 31, was arraigned Friday by Magisterial District Judge Andrew L. Blattenberger on a felony charge of aggravated assault with attempt to cause bodily injury with a deadly weapon.

Police accuse Daniels-Murphy of stabbing a man during a domestic situation about 11 a.m. Thursday on the 1600 block of 14th Avenue.

When police arrived on scene, officers discovered a male victim with stab wounds to the abdomen.

The victim was transported to UPMC Altoona via AMED for moderate injuries, Altoona Police Sgt. Matt Plummer said.

According to the complaint, an argument ensued after the victim entered the residence.

Once the altercation became physical, Daniels-Murphy allegedly brandished a blue knife at the victim.

The victim told Daniels-Murphy that he had a gun in his backpack, but he later told police that he did not have a gun and only said he did because Daniels-Murphy had a knife.

After the physical altercation, the victim discovered the stab wound to his abdomen.

Police said Daniels-Murphy was taken into custody without incident after he spoke with officers on the phone and agreed to meet officials at the police station.

Daniels-Murphy told police that he did not have a knife and believes that the victim could have been cut by a sharp car part he had in his jacket.

His jacket, which was left at the scene, did not have any car parts in it when police found it.

Daniels-Murphy was re­mand­ed to Blair County Prison in lieu of $50,000 cash bail.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled Jan. 12 before Magisterial District Judge Benjamin F. Jones.
