Police Investigate Violent Weekend in Albany
The violence continued over the weekend in Albany and members of the Albany Police Department have confirmed that there was a stabbing early yesterday morning. Early on Sunday morning, around 2:05 a.m. on October 11, 2020, the police were called to a home for a report of a stabbing.
When officers arrived at a home on McAlpine Street, near Sparkhill Avenue, they discovered a man inside the home with severe gashes to his neck and arm. Through their investigation, officers learned that the victim was injured during a fight with a man who also lived in the home.
The unnamed male victim was treated at the scene and then he was taken to the Albany Medical Center Hospital for further treatment. He is still in the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The suspect in the incident was not at the home when the officers arrived, but he was later located in the 400 block of Delaware Avenue and taken into custody. The suspect has been identified as 38-year old José Caan, of Albany.
According to the Albany Police Department, José Caan has been charged with one count of Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the fourth-degree and one count of Attempted Murder in the second- degree. He was arraigned yesterday morning at the Albany County Court.
Members of the Albany Police Department have not released the name of the injured victim. They have also not released information regarding why the incident turned violent. Although things may look bleak, we must always look for a non-violent way to resolve issues.
