UPDATED: One man stabbed in Marcy; self-defense under investigation
MARCY — One man was stabbed multiple times during an argument in Marcy early Friday morning, according to the New York State Police. Troopers said the man may have been stabbed in self-defense.
The injuries are not believed to be life-threatening, troopers stated.
State police spokesperson Trooper Jack Keller said the two men got into a fight in an upstairs apartment above the Empire Center of Dance on River Road at about 8 a.m. Friday. During the dispute, one man stabbed a 30-year-old Utica man multiple times with a knife, troopers said.
When law enforcement arrived, they said the victim was located in the parking lot and the other fled the scene on foot. He was taken into custody a short time later, after being found walking down nearby Maynard Drive.
Keller said no charges have been filed so far because they are still investigating to see if he acted in self-defense. "We're trying to determine if it was or wasn't," Keller stated on Friday. Other people were in the apartment at the time and are still being interviewed, he noted.
The victim was taken to St. Elizabeth Medical Center in Utica for non-life threatening injuries, troopers said.
