SCHENECTADY — Police were alerted to Sunday’s double stabbing in Schenectady by a 911 call from a 10-year-old girl, according to court documents.

Police responded Sunday morning to 427 McClellan St. to find a man and woman suffering from non-life-threatening wounds. They also found the man they said caused those wounds — the woman’s boyfriend.

The 10-year-old girl and a 6-year-old also in the residence were not physically harmed, according to court documents.

Police have charged Charles B. Lewis, 36, who lived at the residence, with one count each of second-degree assault and third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, both felonies.

Lewis also faces charges of misdemeanor menacing, child endangerment and reckless endangerment, records show.

Lewis got into an argument with the 20-year-old son of his girlfriend and stabbed him in the back with a knife, police said. Lewis’ girlfriend then suffered a cut while attempting to break up the fight, police said.

Though he allegedly injured both the woman and the 20-year-old, Lewis only faces charges related to the woman’s injuries, as the 20-year-old has not been cooperative and has not pressed charges, police said. Police did not say whether the woman has been cooperative, but the domestic nature of incident between Lewis and her would result in charges with or without cooperation.

Lewis was arraigned and ordered held without bail.
