Clay Onondaga County Sheriff Kevin E. Walsh reports that a town of Clay teen has been charged with assault after stabbing her boyfriend with a knife.
Sunday evening Sheriff’s deputies charged a 17-year-old resident of Dolshire Drive with assault in the second
degree and criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree. The teen is accused of stabbing her boyfriend during a dispute.
Sheriff’s deputies were called to the residence at approximately 6 p.m. to investigate a domestic
dispute. Deputies report that the girl and her boyfriend Andrew Sills, 23, of the same address, were both arguing when the girl allegedly grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed Sills in the back. Sills suffered from a single stab wound, considered to be non-life threatening, and was transported to University Hospital, where he was expected to be treated and released.
The teen was taken into custody without incident and was arraigned in the Town of Clay Court Sunday evening. Assault in the second degree is a class D felony and criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree is a class A misdemeanor.
