Police say Michael Anderson was wounded with a pocket knife after he forced his way into an apartment in Gloversville on Nov. 19.

Officers found another man had been physically assaulted, and Anderson had suffered wounds caused by a knife.

During the investigation, police said, officers learned Anderson forced his way into the upstairs apartment. During the altercation, police said, Anderson suffered lacerations to the head and torso from a pocket knife the occupant had.

Anderson was treated and released from Nathan Littauer Hospital. He was arraigned and sent to the Fulton County Correctional Facility in lieu of $10,000 cash bail.

The Gloversville Police Department does not anticipate any additional charges.

"We don't feel the other subject [who used the knife] will have to face any charges from the department," Capt. of Detectives Anthony Clay said.
