Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

Police in Pittsburgh have taken into custody 25-year-old Michael C. Paranay of Hazelwood, Pa., in connection with the stabbing of Steelers offensive tackle Mike Adams and attempted theft of his vehicle.

Paranay has been charged with one count of criminal attempt homicide, one count of aggravated assault and one count criminal conspiracy and is being held at Allegheny County Jail.

A cell phone was said to be recovered at the scene of the alleged crime, and while no word was mentioned about the information obtained from the phone, the police are still looking for two suspects - both black men.

Adams' agent, Eric Metz, said Adams was out with friends and was walking alone in the area when the assault occurred. Conviction on all three counts could result in 20 years or more in prison.

UPDATE: Police have taken a second suspect into custody - 26-year-old Dquay Means also of Hazelwood.

Like Paranay, Means has been charged with criminal attempt homicide, aggravated assault, and criminal conspiracy. But Means also has additional charges against him for attempted carjacking, former convict not to possess a firearm, terroristic threats and escaping authorities.
