A 25-year-old man is behind bars after allegedly stabbing another man several times with a knife, severely injuring the victim.
The incident took place in Northern Westchester County around 7:57 p.m., on Monday, June 15, in Yorktown, said the Yorktown Police Department.
Max E. Shulman-Hunter, of Yorktown, was arrested after officers responded to a home to investigate a report a person with a severe laceration, police said.
When officers arrived they found a man severely bleeding from what appeared to be knife wounds. Officers applied a tourniquet to one wound and direct pressure to the other and were able to stem the bleeding, the department said.
After an investigation, police determined that Shulman-Hunter allegedly stabbed the man during an altercation.
Shulman-Hunter was arrested and charged with first-degree assault.
Following his arrest, a judge issued an order of protection for the victim and remanded Shulman-Hunter to the Westchester County Jail without bail.
He is scheduled to appear in court on Friday, June 19.
