NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — The sister of a New Hampshire man stabbed in the neck during a Red Sox-Yankees argument at a Connecticut restaurant says his condition has improved after four surgeries.

Julie Freire, sister of 43-year-old Boston Red Sox fan Monte Freire of Nashua, says his condition has improved from critical to stable at Yale-New Haven Hospital. The New Haven Register reports her comments were made on her brother’s Facebook page Wednesday.

Police say Freire was stabbed at the Chowder Pot restaurant in Branford last Saturday night. Authorities charged 45-year-old New York Yankees fan John Mayor of New Haven with first-degree assault and other crimes.

Mayor is being treated at the same hospital for unknown injuries. He was arraigned at his hospital bed Wednesday, but didn’t enter a plea.

Police say Mayor was injured when other people chased him down after the stabbing.
