A St. John's University lacrosse team co-captain from Suffolk County Long Island was arrested on Tuesday, October 22nd and is facing assault charges after he allegedly stabbed ex-teammate/roommate, nearly disemboweling him, during a fracas over loud music.

Matthew Stockfeder, 21, of Melville, who played lacrosse at Walt Whitman High School and is the current co-captain for the SJU lacrosse team, was arrested on Tuesday, October 22, after stabbing his roommate, Justin Corpolongo, 23, of Somers NY, the NYPD said.

The argument began late on Monday, October 21st, when Corpolongo got home to their off-campus apartment in Queens, complaining that Stockfelder's music was too loud. After exchanging words around midnight, Stockfelder headed to the "unofficial frat house" at 73-20 172nd Street, a few blocks away from the campus.

While Stockfelder was at the "frat house," he repeatedly texted his roommate so many times that it provoked Corpologno to show up at the house to confront him, and then the two began having words but eventually escalated to a physical fight.

During the fight, when Corpologno was holding Stockfelder's head down, he then "felt a sharp pain to his abdomen," the complaint states. Stockfelder allegedly pulled out a knife and stabbed Corpologno. The Daily News reports that the victim [Corpologno] did not know he was stabbed, not until he saw that he was bleeding profusely and realized that his “intestines were coming out."

After the incident, Corpologno was immediately rushed to Booth Memorial Medical Center at New York-Presbyterian Queens. The doctors found a 5-inch puncture to his small intestine, and he was rushed to surgery, the Post reported. Corpolgno underwent surgery and is expected to survive.

Matthew Stockfeder reportedly turned himself in to police on Wednesday and has been charged with 2 counts of felony assault; one count of felony assault with intent to cause injury with a weapon and one count of felony assault with intent to cause serious physical injury.

The University is aware of an incident involving a student and an alum that occurred at an off-campus location, not owned by the University, and is fully cooperating with the investigation by law enforcement officials,” St. John’s University spokesman Brian Browne said to Daily News.

Matthew Stockfeder has been removed from the St. John's University lacrosse team following the incident on Tuesday, October 21st.

The former co-captain of the lacrosse team is accused of stabbing a steak knife twice into his roommate's gut which came perilously close to severing a major artery. The victim, Justin Corpolongo could have quickly bled out in seconds as the two, five-inch stab wounds "missed his descending aorta by millimeters," his mother Robin told to the Daily News.

One of his abs was cut in halfand that ab probably saved his life,” said the victim’s father, Dominick. “His small intensities were sticking out at the time of the incident, and one section of the small intestine was pierced through.”

Part of his small intestines had to be removed, leaving Corpolongo unable to eat at the risk of a major infection.

It’s going to be a long recovery,” the victim’s mother said. “He’s so distraught about it. He can’t believe that it happened."

On Thursday, get-well balloons were tied to Corpolongo’s hospital bed and a teddy bear sat on the table as he slept and recovered.

He’s had a ton of support,” his mother said. "He has an amazing network of friends.”

Really sad story and Im glad that Justin is ok.

Also sad the papers are looking to smear the lacrosse players with using a quote from a STJ student stating "the lacrosse team are crazy - they throw the wildest parties." Singling out 1 players actions and attaching a stigma against all lacrosse players giving people the perception that lacrosse players are rich, privileged, entitled kids who think they can do whatevert they want. Similar to the Duke Lacrosse rape allegations and the Virginia Lacrosse player (who deserved everything he was charged with & sentenced to)...so quick to be shrewd and judgemental about the team & others players as if they are all bad...

Not trying to take away from the horrible incidrent the other night. I know of them both snd again, very sad story. My thoughts and prayers are with Justin and his family.
