Man claims he was stabbed during West Main Street incident


Watertown police were called to a reported stabbing early Tuesday at 519 W. Main St.

City Fire Department officials said an unidentified man claimed he was stabbed about 1:45 a.m. but would not show police his alleged injuries. The man was taken to Samaritan Medical Center by ambulance, but his condition was not known Tuesday night.

No other information about the incident was available Tuesday night, but two people were charged with obstructing the ongoing investigation by not cooperating with police.

Mariaha K. Harris, 21, of 823 Bronson St., and Thomas M. Searchfield, 25, of 103 Woodlawn Ave., Glen Park, were charged at 1:59 a.m. Tuesday with second-degree obstruction of governmental administration.

According to an arrest report, Ms. Harris interfered with the alleged stabbing victim’s medical attention, held on to him while ambulance personnel tried to treat him and refused to leave the area.

Police said Mr. Searchfield tried to leave the area while they were investigating. Police had told him to stay in a vehicle, according to an arrest report.

The two were being held at the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building on $500 police bail pending arraignment Tuesday morning in City Court.
