If You're Going To Stab Someone

Make sure it's not the son of SCPD Commissioner Richard Dormer.

At approximately 2:20 a.m. on March 20th Michael Kiernan had an altercation with Jonathan Christ, 22, of Bayside Queens, in the parking lot of The Irish Viking bar in Saint James. Kiernan punched Christ who suffered injuries to his head and face. Michael Dormer, 21, came to Christ’s aid and Kiernan stabbed him in the stomach.

Kiernan fled from the scene but was chased and caught behind the 7-Eleven store on Lake Avenue by bouncers and bystanders. He was held down until police arrived.

Dormer was transported and admitted to Stony Brook University Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. Christ was treated and released from Stony Brook University Medical Center.

Kiernan, 20, of 26 Montauk St., was arrested and charged with Assault 2nd Degree and Assault 3rd Degree. He was arraigned at First District Court in Central Islip on March 21st. Fourth Squad Detectives are continuing the investigation.
