Man and woman arrested in beating of another man

A 47-year-old Myers Street woman and a 24-year-old Myers Street man were arrested Thursday after the woman allegedly hit and stabbed a man they had both tied to a chair and the male suspect restrained the victim, police said.

Kathy Carpenter Onyebuchi and James McKitchen Jr. were both charged with second-degree assault.

The 51-year-old victim, a Niagara Street resident who apparently had a severe falling out with the two suspects, was taken to the Erie County Medical Center where he was admitted with multiple skull and body injuries, according to a police report.
