STERLING – A Sterling man involved in a March 18 fight in Rock Falls in which another man was stabbed was arrested Wednesday, and police are looking for help finding another suspect, they said in a news release.

Mark A. Chavez, 29, was arrested about 10 a.m. at his home. He is charged with aggravated battery in a public place and mob action, both felonies, and criminal damage to property, a misdemeanor.

Police are looking for Angel J. Rosas, 28, the release said. According to SVM archives, he was living in Sterling a year ago.
