A woman who allegedly assaulted a man in his Milton home and then stole his vehicle was found and arrested in Schenectady, officials said Tuesday.
The Saratoga County Sheriff’s Department received a 911 call Sunday night around 8:44 from a 62-year-old man who said he had been assaulted at his home on Geyser Road in Milton and his 2014 BMW X3 was stolen. Deputies responded to the scene and found him bleeding from the head with a puncture wound in his chest, according to the Sheriff’s Department. EMS responded to the scene and the man was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
The BMW was found early the next day unoccupied in Schenectady. Around 3:15 p.m. Monday, police located the suspect — 42-year-old Stacey A. Walker — in Schenectady.
Walker, of Saratoga Springs, was charged with first-degree assault and fourth-degree grand larceny. She was arraigned in Malta Town Court and sent to Saratoga County jail in lieu of $25,000 cash or $50,000 bail.
The sheriff’s department received help from the state police forensic unit and the Schenectady and Saratoga Springs police departments.
