A University at Buffalo basketball player was arrested Friday after North Tonawanda police said he stabbed a basketball player from Canisius College during a pickup game.

Malik Zachery was charged with second-degree assault and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, in connection with the incident at 875 Eggert Drive, which is the address of St. Matthew Lutheran Church.

In a statement, the university said Zachery has been suspended indefinitely from the UB men's basketball program, but remains enrolled in school.

The athletic departments at both schools confirmed earlier Friday that a player from each program was involved in an incident Wednesday night in North Tonawanda.
