A 35-year-old accused of stabbing four people inside a Niagara Falls bar pleaded not guilty Monday morning.

Police say Eddie Alnardo Mayo, once convicted for manslaughter, stabbed two men and two women inside the Tap Room Bar early Sunday morning.

Niagara Falls Police say officers patrolling the area were approached by a woman who ran out of the bar saying someone had been stabbed. According to officers, several people came out of the bar actively fighting in the street.

Officers at the scene say they found three victims - one man and two women. Officers applied pressure to the wounds and told friends of the victims to help until the ambulance arrived. The three victims were taken by ambulance to the hospital.

Officers learned a fourth victim left the scene and was taken by personal vehicle.

The victims included two 25-year-old men, a 23-year-old woman and a 21-year-old woman.

All four victims were treated at Niagara Falls Memorial Hospital and are expected to make full recoveries.

Mayo was charged with one count of assault in the first degree, three counts of assault in the second degree and four counts of criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree. He pleaded not guilty to the charges Monday in court.

Mayo, remanded without bail, could face 25 years in prison if he is convicted. He will be back in court Friday for a preliminary hearing.
