Two Fergus Falls men were arrested Monday night for their alleged roles in the stabbing of another man on the 300 block of Alcott Avenue.

Police reported that the 30-year-old stabbing victim, who lives in the area, was unhappy because he believed people were shooting fireworks at his house. Around 11:30 p.m., he confronted one set of neighbors about the fireworks before moving on to another house, this one occupied by brothers Brian Christopher Gilbuena, 33, and Cody Kenneth Sundvor, 23.

Witnesses reported that voices were raised and a fight ensued near the residence. During the fight, the man was allegedly stabbed in the side at least once. Police are still investigating the number of stab wounds, but they said it appears that Gilbuena is the brother who allegedly wielded the knife.
