OGDENSBURG — City police are investigating a stabbing Monday at the St. Lawrence Psychiatric Center.

Police responded to an assault report about noon when a patient allegedly attacked a staff member, according to Detective Sgt. Robert H. Wescott.

The attack took place at lunchtime, Mr. Wescott said, and the patient, whose name was not released as further investigations are being conducted, stabbed the employee in the cheek with a metal butter knife.

“As a result, the employee received a puncture to the cheek,” Detective Sgt. Wescott said. “He was treated at Claxton-Hepburn hospital.”

Police are concluding their investigation and are making arrangements with the psychiatric center for an arrest.
