‎WATERTOWN -- A Watertown man has been charged with first degree intentional homicide following a fatal stabbing Thursday.

According to a criminal complaint released Friday, Young Jae Choi, 29, stabbed  27-year-old Dustin Venderheyden to death.

It happened around 4:50 p.m. inside a boarding house above Yanger's Bar, 300 N. 4th St. in Watertown.

David Gérard, a neighbor, tried to stop the attack after he heard screams in his apartment behind the bar. According to the complaint, he went upstairs and found a man stabbing another man on the ground.

Gerard, 24, broke up the fight, but was stabbed in the hand.

"[The sword] was painted black so I thought it was a stick or a rod," Gérard said. "I tried grabbing it and it cut me. I distracted [the suspect] long enough so the other man crawled back to his apartment. Then I went back and called 911."

Watertown's police chief said cops needed a negotiator to coax Choi out of the apartment building and into their custody.

Police said they found the victim seriously injured. He was transported to an area hospital and later died from his injuries.
