RAMAPO, N.Y. -- A local man attacked his landlord with a knife after he tried to break up a fight between the man and his girlfriend on Sunday, Dec 11, according to the Ramapo Police.

The incident occurred when officers responded to a home in the Village of New Hempstead after receiving numerous 911 calls of a domestic fight taking place, police said.

When officers arrived, they were met by the tenant who told them he was locked out of his residence and that the landlord had struck him, police said.

In turn, the landlord told officers that he was checking on the tenant and his girlfriend for the second time when the man pulled out a knife and threatened to stab him. The landlord was stabbed in the hand when he raised his arm to block the attack, police said.

The 32-year-old tenant was charged with felony assault, menacing, and criminal possession of a weapon, police said.

He was released on his own recognizance and is scheduled to appear in court at a later date.
