HALFMOON – A Saratoga Springs woman attempted to stab a man in Halfmoon Sunday, state police said.
The victim suffered what state police described as minor injuries in the incident.
The incident started before 4 a.m. Sunday at the Halfmoon residence. Troopers were called there for a disturbance.
Troopers arrived to find a distraught man who indicated a woman by the name of Martha Brayman showed up at his home uninvited. When he asked her to leave, she became upset and an argument ensued, state police said. A state police release did not indicate if, or how, the two knew each other.
Brayman, 52, then responded by punching the victim several times, causing minor injury. The victim managed to call police, but Brayman then fled, state police said.
Brayman, however, quickly returned with a knife and attempted to stab the man. She then used the knife to damage his car.
The victim got away without further injury and Brayman left before troopers arrived.
State police later tracked Brayman down in Saratoga Springs and took her into custody.
Brayman faces one count each of second-degree attempted assault and third-degree criminal mischief, felonies, as well as third-degree assault, second-degree menacing, fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon and third-degree criminal trespass, misdemeanors.
Brayman was arraigned and ordered held on $7,500 bail.
