BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — A 23-year-old Buffalo man was virtually arraigned Friday on an indictment charging him with two counts of assault in the first degree.

The Erie County District Attorney's Office says Carlos J. Rosa allegedly slashed a victim across the face outside of a Pearl Street nightclub on January 1 around 2:30 a.m.

Officials say the victim suffered a large laceration and required surgery that will result in a permanent scar.

Rosa is scheduled to return January 20. He remains held on $20,000 bail and faces a maximum of 25 years in prison if convicted on all charges.
