GOUVERNEUR – A Gouverneur man was arrested for felony first degree assault Friday for allegedly stabbing a man in the abdomen last summer.
Gouverneur Village Police said Tyree D. Judge, 23, of 42 Prospect St., was arrested upon his release from the Onondaga County Correctional Facility where he had been held since a July 2012 arrest by Syracuse City Police on unrelated charges.
Judge was also charged with fourth degree criminal possession of a weapon, a misdemeanor, police said.
Gouverneur police said the arrest followed an in-depth investigation into the June 28 stabbing in the parking lot behind Key Bank, 62 Church St.
Officer Steven M. Young responded to a report of disorderly subjects and a possible fight and discovered Ryan M. Weir, 20, of Gouverneur, had been stabbed. Weir was treated at E. J. Noble Hospital, police said.
The case was presented to a St. Lawrence County grand jury by county District Attorney Nicole Duve, resulting in an indictment and arrest warrant issued by county Judge Jerome Richards, police said.
Judge was arraigned before Richards and sent to St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility in lieu of $10,000 cash or $20,000 bail bond, police said.
Judge is schedule to reappear in county court on Feb. 1, police said.
