    A fight involving multiple people was caught on surveillance video and at one point, according to a criminal complaint, Bob Jr. was seen "waving a knife."

    The victim told police he stopped Bob Jr. from trying to board a bus and that's when things spilled into Market Square.

    This is the second stabbing in downtown Pittsburgh within a week. Two women were stabbed on Sixth Avenue Thursday, and one of them died.
