Alleged Stabber Faces Additional Charges


Additional charges have been filed against the man accused of stabbing a woman during a domestic incident Thursday on Central Street in Watertown.

City police say 34 year old Lisandro Torres was charged Friday with first degree aggravated criminal contempt and second degree assault after he allegedly hit his girlfriend, 31 year old Jessica West, in the head with a porch light.

She was treated at Samaritan Medical Center and released.

Police say West had an order of protection against Torres.

He was charged Thursday with second degree assault and fourth degree criminal possession of a weapon for allegedly stabbing 20 year old Alicia Hollenbeck, West's niece, in the shoulder.

Torres was arraigned on all four charges in Watertown city court Friday morning. He was sent to Jefferson County jail without bail.
