      A man is under arrest for allegedly pushing two people onto hot coals from a grill and stabbing one of them with a barbecue utensil.


      Police say Fredrick Walker threw a woman onto the hot coals after he knocked over the grill in front of a home in Inwood, Long Island, on Saturday.


      Police say he also struck the woman's head against the sidewalk and stabbed her in the neck with the utensil.

      Both victims were treated for cuts and burns at a hospital.


      Walker was charged with assault and criminal possession of a weapon.
