He said police arrested and questioned a man other than Dean shortly after he arrived on the scene Thursday evening.

Dean was arraigned in Ramapo District Court. The judge set bail at $1 million cash, $5 million secured bond or $10 million partially secured bond. He will appear in court Thursday morning for a preliminary hearing on misdemeanor charges unless a grand jury returns an indictment.

The judge also issued a stay-away order, stipulating that Dean must not make contact with the man he is accused of stabbing, Hyman’s release said.

Hyman said Saturday’s arrest followed an investigation involving multiple law enforcement agencies, including Ramapo detectives assigned to the FBI Safe Streets Task Force and detectives from the Spring Valley Police Department. Hyman said the department was also assisted by the Rockland County Sheriff’s Office, the Rockland District Attorney’s Office and the Clarkstown Police Department.
