      Man stabbed following fight at Roxy nightclub

      A man was stabbed at a Providence nightclub early Sunday morning, police said.

      Police said 25-year-old Jonathan Perez told investigators the stabbing happened at the Roxy during a fight over a spilled drink.

      Perez was taken by ambulance to Rhode Island Hospital where he was later released.

      According to a Providence police report, club security broke up the fight inside just before Perez stumbled outside to alert officers.

      The Providence Board of Licenses is scheduled to meet Wednesday to decide whether or not to close the nightclub.

      The board is still considering sanctions against the club following an incident during a college part on Sept. 12.
