Niagara County Sheriff's investigators say an allege Facebook dispute led to a double stabbing in Wheatfield.

Deputies were called out to 2536 Stoelting Street, about 11 p.m. Wednesday. When officers arrived, they discovered two victims with stab wounds. 

The first victim was a teenage male with cuts to his left arm. He was treated at the scene. Deputies found his stepfather had been stabbed in the abdomen. Mercy Flight was called to rush him to Erie County Medical Center. He's expected to survive the stabbing. 

Investigators say the teen and his stepfather were stabbed as a result of an argument on Facebook. Authorities say the suspects showed up at the victims' house to settle the matter.

Kim Bradley, 17, and Eduardo Martinez, 19, are charged with second degree assault in the double stabbing. The suspects were arrested at an area Walmart.

Bradley and Martinez are being held on bail, which was set at $20,000 each. Both suspects are due back in court on March 23rd.
