Man in New York State Charged After Attacking Man With Sword
A man in New York state is in critical condition after police say he was attacked Monday afternoon. Officials have not disclosed what exactly lead to the assault, though the suspect involved used a sword as their weapon of choice.
Sources say the victim ended up losing a lot of blood after the alleged assault. Now, police are looking for answers as to what led to this serious altercation.
WNYT says that the sword attack took place Monday afternoon at a building in Albany. Police say that while the 34-year-old victim suffered several cuts, they were serious enough to cause him to lose a lot of blood. WNYT says he is currently in critical condition. Officials say the 42-year-old suspect was arrested and has been charged with attempted murder.
New York Man Allegedly Threatened Neighbor With Chainsaw
In what sounds like a scene out of either Christmas Vacation, or maybe the latest low-budget horror flick, a man stands accused of threatening their neighbor with a chainsaw. And you thought some of your neighbors were nuts? According to New York State Police, this was not the first time they were called to this residence over the weekend. In fact, it was the fourth.
WKTV says that police were called to the home one night in December 2021 and found the 59-year-old New York man with a chainsaw at his feet. There aren't too many details on exactly how this whole neighborly skirmish started, though troopers ended up having to taser the suspect as they placed him under arrest.
Police say the man is accused of threatening to kill his neighbor and also chainsawing the neighbor's vehicle.
Sources say the suspect is now facing a number of charges, including resisting arrest, though he was just issued an appearance ticket and released.
Again, police say this was the fourth time in two days they were called to the area because of this one particular suspect.
Bail reform remains a topic of much controversy. Another recent case involves a New York state man who was arrested three times in just 36 hours. And according to the NY Post, the suspect even told the NYPD that he'd be out without bail because he "didn't have a record". The suspect's family claims the homeless man was diagnosed with schizophrenia years ago and never got the full treatment that he has needed. The Post says the suspect's crime spree began with him stealing a 12-pack of beer, and eventually saw him allegedly rob two separate women of their belongings on the subway.
