A second man has been arrested in connection with the stabbing and attempted carjacking of Pittsburgh Steelers offensive tackle Mike Adams, leaving one still at-large, police told multiple news outlets.

Detectives arrested Dequay Means, 26, from Hazelwood, Pa., on Monday night following a foot chase. He was charged with criminal attempt homicide, aggravated assault, attempted carjacking, former convict not to possess a firearm, terroristic threats, criminal conspiracy and escape.

Earlier Monday, police arrested 25-year-old Michael Paranay of Pittsburgh, and charged him with criminal attempted homicide, aggravated assault, attempted robbery and conspiracy. Both men are in prison.

Adams was stabbed twice early Saturday during an attempted carjacking on the Pittsburgh's South Side. He suffered non-life threatening wounds to the abdomen and forearm. He told officers he was standing near his truck shortly after 3 a.m. when three men confronted him. One held a knife, while another held a handgun.

When Adams told the men he didn't have his keys, one man pointed the gun at his face while the other stabbed him twice. All three then fled, police said.

"We recognize the world that we live in, and things like this are capable of happening," Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin told reporters Monday. "Not that we accept it, but we understand that it's capable of happening."

Barring any setbacks, Adams is expected to be ready when camp begins.
