Two upstate New Yorkers have been arrested in connection with a Times Square double stabbing that was the alleged result of a drug deal gone bad, police said. Officers in Midtown apprehended Pedro Nieves Diaz, 23, and Ashley Arcuri, 19, yesterday. The two hail from Utica and Rome, respectively.

Nieves and Arcuri are suspected of stabbing two 25-year-old men on West 42nd Street near Madam Tussaud's Wax Museum early Sunday morning. According to ABC, one man was stabbed in his left shoulder while the other was sliced in the neck. Both men were taken to Bellevue Hospital and treated for their injuries.

Police told the Post that both victims had been celebrating a birthday at Hooters before they ran into Diaz and Arcuri.

Investigators claim Diaz approached the two victims and offered to sell them marijuana, but became upset by remarks they made to Arcuri, pulled out a weapon, and stabbed them.

Diaz has been charged with attempted murder, criminal possession of a weapon, and possession of a controlled substance. Arcuri has also been charged with possession of a controlled substance.

Also on Sunday morning, a tourist survived getting stabbed in the back of the head near the intersection of 46th Street and Vanderbilt Avenue; no arrests have been made in that case.
