A Norwich woman is in critical condition after deputies say her former boyfriend assaulted and robbed her in her driveway on Bourbon Street.

The Chenango County Sheriff's office said they received a call about the attack around 6:45 a.m. on Thursday. 39 year-old Lucinda Knoll was taken to Wilson Hospital for serious head trauma and is in critical condition.

Deputies arrested Knoll's former boyfriend, 48 year-old William Danielson of Oxford. Danielson is charged with attempted murder and robbery, both felonies. Danielson was arraigned at Chenango County Court and taken to Chenango County Correctional Facility without bail.

Danielson is set to reappear in the town of Norwich Court on January 2.

The Sheriff's office is asking anyone who was in the Maple Grove Trailer Park around 6 a.m. who may have seen anything suspicious to call 607-337-1921 or 607-337-1863.
