JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (WIVB) – Jamestown Police say a Willard Street man was stabbed in his own apartment by a burglar, early Friday morning.
According to investigators, 39-year-old Lawrence White broke into a second floor apartment around 2:30 a.m. The noise of the break-in woke the male resident who confronted the alleged burglar.
An altercation ensued, during which the male victim was stabbed in the chest. The victim was taken to WCA hospital with non-life threatening injuries and later transferred to UPMC in Erie, PA.
Police caught up with White at his home on Barrows Street a short time later and arrested him for second degree burglary and second degree assault.
White was taken to the city jail pending arraignment.
