Man pleads guilty to stabbing in ex-girlfriend’s apartment

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A Schenectady man has pleaded guilty to felony attempted assault for a January stabbing of a man inside his ex-girlfriend’s apartment.

On January 25, 2016, Markese Jones forced his way into his ex-girlfriend’s apartment on Linden Street in Schenectady. When he saw another man inside, he pulled out a knife and began to fight, stabbing the other man several times in the upper back.

Police say the victim escaped through a window. After a neighbor heard the commotion and called 911, the victim was located and transported to Ellis Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Jones fled the scene, and was apprehended by the Schenectady Police Department the next day.

Jones plead guilty to a felony charge of Attempted Assault in the First Degree on Thursday.

He will receive an eight year sentence followed by five years of post-release supervision. As part of the plea, Jones waived his right to appeal the conviction and sentence.

Orders of protection will also be issued for the victims.
