Police: Gloversville altercation leaves man with stab wounds
GLOVERSVILLE A Sunday afternoon altercation left one man with life-threatening stab wounds and another with less serious injuries, according to Gloversville police.
At approximately 4:15 p.m., officers responded to a report of a fight at 14 West Eighth Ave. Upon arrival, they found an individual with cuts to his face, hand and head.
Police were told that two other men, Gary “Haitian Jack” Bernard of Gloversville and Seayon “Blue” Lyttle of New York City, had come to the residence and attacked a resident after an argument.
During the altercation, Bernard was allegedly stabbed in the back by that resident.
Bernard and Lyttle then reportedly left for the hospital, where medical staff determined that Bernard had life-threatening injuries.
Despite that, police say, Bernard left the emergency room untreated and was subsequently apprehended and brought to the Gloversville Police Department.
Once at the station, police say Bernard passed out due to blood loss. He was transported to Nathan Littauer Hospital and then to Albany Medical Center for treatment.
Bernard and Lyttle were both charged with third-degree assault.
Lyttle was sent to the Fulton County Correctional Facility, while Bernard was issued an appearance ticket to appear in court at a later date.
Police said the investigation is continuing and there may be more arrests.
