Syracuse police make two arrests in stabbing attacks occurring just as 2019 is getting underway.
Officers were sent to the VA Hospital on Irving Avenue just past midnight and found a man who told police his wife had attacked him. The two were having a fight when Zanette Knighton swang a knife at the victim and cut him.
Just after 6 pm, officers sent to Butternut Street found Tyler Gammons holding a pair of scissors. Gammons was taken into custody. Officers learned that Gammons stabbed an 18-year-old in the back during a fight.
Neither victim has serious injuries. Both Knighton and Gammons face assault and weapons charges and are in custody.
