GREENVILLE, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A man accused of stabbing his father and grandmother in the head and hands in the town of Greenville is in police custody.
On January 25, New York State Police responded to a domestic dispute at a private residence in Country Estates in the Greenville. Upon arrival, they discovered a 61-year-old male and an 84-year-old female with several stab wounds.
“He rang the bell and said, ‘Call the police,’” neighbor Evelyn Schneider said. “He was bleeding from his face, and some of the blood came on our storm door.”
Luckily, Schneider had an at-home nurse to help until ambulances arrived.
Police said 21-year-old Dylan Buffe stabbed both victims multiple times before he fled in a vehicle. A notice was put out to surrounding areas describing the suspect and the car.
Albany County Sheriff’s deputies observed the vehicle traveling on Tracey Road in Coeymans. When they tried to pull Buffe over, the car drove off the roadway and crashed into some trees and an embankment.
He was then taken into custody without further incident.
“He did not struggle and is not really cooperating,” NYSP Sr. Investigator Peter Kusminsky said.
Police and neighbors who knew Buffe said he was isolated and recently became distant.
“He was extremely quiet,” another neighbor said. “He was an extremely quiet boy.”
The victims were transported to Columbia Memorial Hospital where they were treated for multiple stab wounds to their heads and hands. Buffe was arrested for two counts of Attempted Murder in the Second Degree and Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Fourth Degree.
