NIAGARA FALLS

Man stabbed outside Main Street business

Falls police were called to the 1500 block of Main Street about 2:45 a.m. Sunday for a report of a large fight with a knife involved.

Eventually police tracked down a man being treated for several lacerations at Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center. He said family members called him to the fight for help and wasn’t sure what had happened after that.

Police said the man had lacerations to his forehead, cheek, arm and midsection. Officers also noted the man wasn’t very cooperative.



Heavy bridge traffic brings arrest

Falls police charged a Rochester woman blocking heavy bridge traffic in the area of Fourth and Main streets after she refused their orders Saturday night.

Police said they first noticed Shawn E. Perry, 41, 28 Carthage Drive, when she was blocking several other cars as they were waiting in line about 7:30 p.m. After telling her to move, officers said they heard honking and saw Perry was the source of it.

She was eventually charged with disorderly conduct, obstructing an intersection and driving without insurance.



Look out for this Falls slasher

A 50-year-old city man told police Sunday he was at a house party in the 600 block of 18th Street about 1 a.m. when he got into an argument with a man there who then left the party.

The victim said a short time later, the man returned with a machete and tried to attack him. The victim said he tried to wrestle the machete away and was punched in the face. Other party-goers separated the man from the big knife and he left.

About two hours later, a resident on the 600 block of 18th Street identified the same machete-welding man as the person he saw slashing one of the tires of his ’99 GMC Jimmy.



How many times have we heard this story?

The resident said he left for two hours at 5:45 a.m. and when he returned the “friend” was gone as was a coin jar containing about $30 and a $1,760 diamond ring.
