A Putnam County Sheriff's deputy who was stabbed during an incident in Putnam Valley suffered injuries that were more serious than originally thought.

According to Putnam County Sheriff Robert Langley Jr., the unnamed deputy underwent two surgeries.

"The damage was more extensive than originally thought but the skilled surgeons at New York-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital were able to repair the damage," the sheriff said. "His prognosis for a full recovery is good."

The deputy was stabbed while investigating a disturbance in the Town of Putnam Valley around 10 a.m., Monday, Jan. 20 in Putnam Valley.

The deputy was discharged from the hospital on Wednesday, Jan. 22, with "much fanfare," with members of the Sheriff's Office, other local law enforcement-including a helicopter flyover from Westchester County Police, K9s, first responders and hospital staff lining the lobby.

The deputy is currently resting at home.

"We are very fortunate to have such a supportive community," Langley said. "The deputy extends his gratitude to everyone who sent their good thoughts and prayers and for their good wishes."
