Deputies: Parolee charged with assault after stabbing in Clay
CLAY, N.Y. —
A North Syracuse man, who was recently released from state prison, was arrested Thursday after a stabbing at the Windsor Place Apartments in Clay.
According to the Onondaga County Sheriff's Office, 25-year-old Rahmel Cox, who is also on parole, was charged with assault in the second degree, criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree and criminal mischief in the fourth degree.
Cox was released from state prison on July 2, according to the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision. Records show he was in state prison for two burglary charges.
Deputies responded to the Windsor Place Apartment complex just after 3:09 p.m. on Thursday. Investigators said an ongoing dispute between two men lead to the stabbing.
The victim, a 34-year-old man, suffered stab wounds to the chest and was taken to Upstate University Hospital. Deputies said he was treated for his injuries which were considered serious, but non-life threatening.
Cox was arraigned Thursday in Centralized Arraignment Court. He was sent to the Onondaga County Justice Center without bail.
