    The stabbings happened outside Deco in Manhattan. Police say the crimes were separate incidents even though they happened about half an hour apart.

    Police have arrested a 21-year-old man in the stabbing of two people outside a lower Manhattan nightclub, but investigators are still looking for whoever stabbed three other people outside the same club about a half-hour later.

         Police say all five victims are in stable condition after the violence early Saturday outside Deco, in Manhattan's Tribeca neighborhood.

    Olmedo's home telephone number isn't in service, and police weren't certain whether he has a lawyer.
        
    A woman and two men were stabbed in the later incident.
        
    A call and e-mails to the nightclub weren't immediately returned Saturday.
