2 charged in stabbing

GLOVERSVILLE — Two city teens have been charged in connection with the stabbing of a man on Saturday night.

A 15-year-old male was charged with second-degree assault and a 16-year-old male was charged with second-degree menacing by city police after being taken into custody on Monday at 2:30 p.m. Police have not released the names of the arrested individuals due to their age.

According to police, the teens were identified through an investigation into a stabbing that occurred on Second Avenue on Saturday around 8:39 p.m. Responding officers dispatched to the area located the adult male victim who had been stabbed in the neck after a minor verbal dispute escalated.

The man was treated at Albany Medical Center for non-life threatening injuries on Saturday and was released the same night.

Police closed Second Avenue from Kingsboro Avenue to Yale Street on Saturday while processing the scene and collecting physical evidence from the site of the incident that spanned between several homes.

Detectives interviewed several witnesses and collected digital surveillance footage of the incident, determining that the 15-year-old male had committed the stabbing and the 16-year-old male had displayed a knife during the dispute.

Police say no additional suspects are being sought at this time and there is no danger to the public at large.
