Subject Arrested for Stabbing

On June 24th, 2019 Port Jervis Police arrested Juliette Pampalone, age 19, of Port Jervis and charged her with Assault in the Second Degree (Class D Felony) and Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the 4th Degree (Class A Misdemeanor). The arrest results from an investigation into a reported stabbing that occurred during the late evening hours of June 23rd on Sussex Street near the Norfolk Southern rail line. The defendant allegedly used a small folding knife to stab a fifteen year old male multiple times in the upper body and neck during a physical altercation. The victim was transported to Bon Secours Community Hospital and later transferred to Westchester Medical Center for medical treatment. The victim has since been released from the hospital and is recovering.

The defendant was arraigned in Port Jervis City Court and remanded to Orange County Jail in lieu of $7500.00 bail pending further court appearances.

Notice: A criminal charge is merely an allegation by the police that a defendant has committed a violation of the criminal law, and it is not evidence of guilt. All defendants are presumed innocent and entitled to a fair trial, during which it will be the State of New York’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
