    ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

    A man kicked out of a New Year's Eve party and returned, stabbing five people early Tuesday, was arrested and was in court Wednesday.

    Luke O'Donovan, 19, was not given bond.

    O'Donovan and Andrew Mainor were involved in an altercation and O'Donovan was asked to leave the home on Gibson Street, according to officers on the scene.

    Police said O'Donovan returned around 3:30 a.m. with what appeared to be a knife and stabbed Mainor.

    Others tried to subdue O'Donovan, at which time he began stabbing all of them.

    A woman called 911 as she attempted to drive several victims of the stabbing to an area hospital.

    Two people sustained stab wounds to the abdominal and leg areas which left both semi-conscious at the time, police said.

    During the scuffle, O'Donovan was cut on his lower back.

    All together, three victims were taken to Atlanta Medical Center, one of which was in critical but stable condition. A fourth person was taken to Emory University Hospital Midtown. There were a total of six people injured.

    O'Donovan was charged with five counts of aggravated assault.

    I'm confused. One article calls him the victim, the other calls him the perp.

    He's blaming metta8 for the article he found. It is confusing. Metta8 ISN'T to blame for 3rd party news, but Jack may have finally found a topic to crow about with some validity.

    It's kind of like the original O J Simpson trial, I thought there were two different outcomes. Perspective I guess!

    The original news items call him the perp, because he was the perp. There was never any question about it.

    O'Donovan as victim was concocted after the fact. HuffPo and others have created a new revised story in whcih they omit the fact that O'Donovan returned to the party and instigated the melee.

    This isn't even an embellished and inaccurate folk-tale, as is the story of Matthew Shepard. This one is just blatant deception.
