According to detectives, Michael Pelaez, 22, of Wantagh, and a 25-year-old male victim were playing in the garage of Palaez' home at 3:55 a.m. Monday when the argument ensued. 

Pelaez allegedly went into his home, retrieved a kitchen knife and stabbed the victim in the right hand. The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment while Palaez was arrested at the scene.
