Allegedly stabs Patterson man during altercation
A Beacon man has been charged with attempted murder after he allegedly stabbed a Patterson man multiple times during an altercation.
Patrick Murphy, 27, of 15 Oak St., was arrested after Putnam County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a 911 call at 10 a.m. on April 25. When they arrived at 1129 Route 311 in Patterson, they found a 60-year-old man outside the residence bleeding heavily from multiple stab wounds to the torso.
The victim was with his girlfriend, daughter and infant granddaughter. They and others told deputies that Murphy had been the assailant. At that point, Murphy came outside and was detained.
The Patterson Volunteer Ambulance Corps transported the victim to Danbury Hospital, where he underwent surgery.
Investigators charged Murphy with attempted murder and assault, both felonies, and criminal possession of a weapon and endangering the welfare of a child, both misdemeanors. The defendant was arraigned before Town of Patterson Justice Anthony Mole and was remanded to the Putnam County jail without bail to await a hearing scheduled for May 2.
