CHERRY HILL, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) – A brawl in a Cherry Hill, N.J. nightclub left four people with stab wounds and another facing numerous charges.

Cherry Hill police say the fight at the Top Dog Night Club started around 2 a.m. Sunday.

Two patrons on the dance floor were initially involved, but other patrons soon joined in while club security worked to break it up.

During the brawl, 32-year-old Daniel Skillings of Sicklerville allegedly stabbed the four victims, who were all treated at a hospital and later released. A bouncer was among those wounded in the incident.

Another bouncer was also treated there for rib injuries suffered in the brawl.

Bouncers eventually disarmed Skillings, who was charged with weapons offenses and four counts of aggravated assault. He was being held on $212,500 cash bail.
