SCHENECTADY – A 60-year-old city man has been arrested in connection with a Saturday evening stabbing that injured a 70-year-old outside Summit Towers, police said.
Steven Charlotten, 60, of Schenectady, was arrested and charged with one count of second-degree assault, a felony, police said.
Charlotten is accused of stabbing the 70-year-old man outside Summit Towers just after 7 p.m. Saturday evening after an argument, police said.
Police were called to the area for the stabbing and found the victim with a stab wound to the upper chest. The man was treated at the scene and taken to a local hospital, where he continued to receive care Sunday, police said. Police said the injury appeared to be non-life-theatening.
Police also found Charlotten at the scene. They detained him, took him to the police station and later charged him, police said.
The Saturday evening stabbing happened about 15 hours after police responded to reports of a large fight in the 900 block of McClellan Street where one person suffered a stab and another suffered a gunshot wound, police said.
The injuries to the two people in the Saturday morning incident appeared to be non-life-threatening, police said later Saturday. No updates were available Sunday on the Saturday morning incident.
Police are asking anyone with information in the earlier case to call the department’s Detective Division at 518-382-5245.
