UPDATE: Sioux Falls Police make arrest following stabbing
A 24 year-old man is behind bars in Sioux Falls after he was arrested in connection with a stabbing, last week.
Derek Jordan Arapahoe is charged with aggravated assault and resisting arrest after police say he swung a large knife during an argument at an apartment complex along N. Prairie Avenue, on Friday. That argument sent a 21 year-old man to the hospital. Meanwhile, police are looking for a second suspect who was there when the stabbing took place.

Police are searching for two suspects accused of attacking a young man with a machete Friday afternoon.
Officers were called to the 400 block of N. Prairie Ave. around 2:30 this afternoon for reports of a stabbing. The 21-year-old victim had a wound on his head that police said appeared to be from an edged weapon.
Rural/Metro Ambulance transported him to an area hospital, where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries.
Sgt. Dave Osterquist said the initial investigation indicates that the suspects confronted the victim in the entryway of an apartment building. One of them was carrying a large knife, that was described as a machete.
During the course of the argument, one of the suspects swung the knife at the victim, striking him in the head, Osterquist said. The suspects fled in the scene in a vehicle described as a tan Blazer or Jeep.
