Police: Woman assaulted with knife early Sunday at Schenectady’s Union Inn

Police were called there at 2:40 a.m., police say

SCHENECTADY – A woman suffered knife wounds in an assault early Sunday at the Union Inn in Schenectady, police said.

The woman suffered cuts to her face and neck was taken to Ellis Hospital for treatment. She was in stable condition later Sunday, police said.

Police were called to the Union Inn, 517 Union St., at 2:40 Sunday morning  for a report of an assault, police spokesman Sgt. Jeffrey McCutcheon said.

Officers arrived and found the 24-year-old woman injured. The suspect fled the scene upon police arrival, McCutcheon said.

The victim was treated by Schenectady Fire Department paramedics and taken to Ellis, McCutcheon said.

Police detectives and evidence technicians processed the scene and the investigation was continuing Sunday afternoon, McCutcheon said. No one was in custody as of Sunday afternoon, McCutcheon said.

The incident follows one that happened last month in the area of the Union Inn that involved a slashing. Police were called there about 3 a.m. Sept. 14 and could be seen both inside and outside the establishment. That victim was treated at a local hospital.

Police said then they were investigating the exact location of that incident. No arrests in the Sept. 14 slashing have been reported.
