RICHMONDVILLE — A Cobleskill man is facing charges related to an assault, in March, that involved a meat cleaver, state police said Wednesday.
Shawn M. Stuber, 37, was arrested in the town of Schoharie on an indictment charging him with second-degree assault, a felony, state police said.
He is accused of cutting a man in the neck and face with the meat cleaver in Richmondville.
Troopers did not describe the nature of the victim’s injuries, but the charge suggests they were not considered serious.
A Schoharie County grand jury heard the case and voted to indict, which led to the arrest this week, according to troopers. Stuber had not been previously charged in the case.
Stuber was arraigned and ordered held on $10,000 bail.
He was arrested in a different case earlier this year, state police records show. He led troopers on a brief chase Jan. 24 in the town of Fulton, then fled on foot. Troopers arrested him a short time later.
He was charged in that case with third-degree unlawfully fleeing a police officer and resisting arrest. The status of that case could not be immediately determined.
