SUFFERN – A forty three-yr-previous village man was arrested final weekend on a number of costs accusing him stabbing one lady and assaulting one other in entrance of a pair of youngsters, police stated. 

Juan Monge-Jacome was arrested round 2:30 a.m. Sunday inside a Lafayette Avenue house, in line with the Suffern police department.

Monge-Jacome was charged with second-degree assault; second-degree attempted assault; two counts of endangering the welfare of a child; third-degree assault; four counts of second-degree menacing; fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon; and two counts of second-degree harassment, according to police. 

Officers arrived at the rear of the apartment that morning and found two women and two children, according to police. One of the women had head injuries, and the other woman was stabbed several times in the back, according to police. 

When officers entered the apartment, they found Monge-Jacome and took him into custody, according to police. 

A police investigation revealed that Monge-Jacome arrived at the apartment early that morning and allegedly began attacking the two women, according to police.

Monge-Jacome allegedly threw one of the women to the ground and kicked her in front of the children, according to police.

He then reportedly picked up a knife and put it over his head in a threatening manner toward the children and one of the women, according to police. 

At that moment, the other woman attempted to protect the children by jumping in front of them, and was stabbed in the back by Monge-Jacome, according to police. 

The two women and children then ran out of the apartment, according to police. 

Monge-Jacome was arraigned and sent to the county jail on $75,000 bail, according to police.
