GLOVERSVILLE – A man was stabbed in front of the City Hall police station just after noon today.
Gloversville police Chief Marc Porter said today that police have the alleged assailant in custody, but he hasn’t been charged yet.
Emergency medical services received a 911 call at 12:04 p.m. today reporting a “disorderly conduct” incident on Frontage Road.
Gloversville police at the scene said early this afternoon that they would be issuing a news release later.
Police were at the scene interviewing several witnesses, and bystanders were not allowed to cross the street.
But witnesses to the incident, who were unidentified, said it started when a gray Honda Accord pulled into the middle of Frontage Road. Several people exited the vehicle and started fighting in front of City Hall, witnesses said.
A witness said the stabbed man stated “I just got stabbed … He [expletive] stabbed me.”
Witnesses, including a crew from Channel 9 TV in Albany who were at the scene, said that after the man was stabbed, several persons ran to the east side of City Hall. The man was left bleeding and police soon arrived outside to attend to the stabbing victim. People inside the vehicle were interviewed.
The Accord was eventually towed and the victim was taken away from the scene by the Ambulance Service of Fulton County.
Porter said the stabbing victim was being taken to Albany Medical Center Hospital.
More on this story will appear on the website and in Wednesday’s print addition.
