A bar brawl left four people stabbed, two bouncers injured and one man behind bars.

The melee broke out just after 2 a.m. Sunday morning on the dance floor at Top Dog on W Marlton Pike in Cherry Hill, N.J.

Two men began fighting on the second-floor of the nightclub and as a bouncer tried to break up the original brawl more people joined in on the original fight, according to Cherry Hill Police Lt. Sean Redmond.

Daniel Skillings, 32, of Sicklerville, N.J. is accused of stabbing the security guard in the leg.

According to police, other security personal jumped in to subdue Skillings and take away his knife. Once the fight stopped, it was discovered that three patrons were also stabbed by Skillings, investigators said.

All the stab victims, including the bouncer, were treated at the hospital and released.

Another bouncer breaking up the brawl was treated for broken ribs. It’s unclear who threw the punch that led to the injury, according to police.

Skillings is charged with four counts of aggravated assault and weapons charges. He was sent to Camden County jail unable to post $212,500 full cash bail.
