FULTON COUNTY, Ga. -

The 19-year-old man accused of stabbing several people at a New Year's Eve party was denied bond by a Fulton County judge on Wednesday.

The mother of suspect Luke O'Donovan, and his public defender, told the judge that O'Donovan was attacked by a group of people, and only trying to defend himself.

"There are multiple eyewitnesses that saw the incident that said he was being attacked by multiple people, and he was stabbed and it was self-defense. He is not guilty," said O'Donovan's mother.

However, the judge considered O'Donovan a threat, and ordered him held without bond.

Police say O'Donovan stabbed a number of people at the party on Gibson Street in southeast Atlanta. They say O'Donovan got into an argument with Andrew Mainor. Witnesses say O'Donovan pulled a knife and stabbed Mainor.

Six people ended up hurt, including O'Donovan, who was cut on his lower back. He now faces five counts of aggravated assault.
    
A number of the victims were taken to Atlanta Medical Center. One was listed in critical but stable condition after undergoing surgery.

O'Donovan's next court appearance is set for January 16 at the Fulton County courthouse.

    Polluted Gowanus Canal doesn't scare away neighborhood development

    Every day, those who live and work in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn drive and bike and walk across their canal, growing a little more accustomed to but no less disgusted by its scent and appearance. Once the busiest canal in the United States, the Gowanus now bears the distinction as perhaps the most polluted body of water in the nation. No one knows exactly how polluted because few have summoned enough courage to dive into its murky depths to investigate.
