A Jamestown man is facing assault and burglary charges following a stabbing incident Tuesday.

The Jamestown Police Department reported the arrest of 44-year-old William R. Buckley after officers responded shortly after 3 p.m. to an East Eighth Street address. Upon arrival, officers found a victim who suffered multiple stab wounds.

The victim was transported to UPMC Chautauqua for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, the Jamestown Police Department said in a news release.

An investigation found that Buckley allegedly entered the residence, “started an altercation with the victim and then stabbed the victim,” JPD said.

The city man was located a short time later and taken into custody. He was being held pending arraignment on charges of second-degree assault and first-degree burglary.
