An employee at the Q Mandarin Restaurant in Cambridge who injured one employee and critically injured another in a 2010 incident has been found guilty of first degree assault.

A ruling in 10th District Court in Cambridge found Jing Hai Jiang, 50, guilty of felony first degree assault causing great bodily harm from the fight he was involved in at the restaurant back on Oct. 31, 2010.

He was acquitted of felony 1st degree-premeditated-murder and a second count of felony first degree assault.

According to the criminal complaint an argument broke out in the kitchen of the Q Mandarin in which Jiang swung a large knife at the first victim, cutting him in the head, neck and on his right arm.

The second victim attempted to intervene and was struck in the hand with the knife and he bled profusely.

Jiang fled out the back door, leaving the weapon behind. Following an intensive search, Jiang was found hiding in a shed on the southern edge of Cambridge later that day.

Jiang is scheduled for sentencing March 21.
