    Bad: Greenfield man held for alleged stabbing (MA)

    As reported today in my local paper the Daily Hampshire Gazette:

    Greenfield man held for alleged stabbing

    By JEREMY DIRAC
    Gazette Contributing Writer

    GREENFIELD - A local man has been charged with attempted murder after he allegedly stabbed another man in the neck in the bathroom of a Main Street bar early Saturday morning.

    Arrested was 32-year-old Cesar Villanueva of Chapman Street, Greenfield. According to police, at about at about 12:30 a.m., near closing time, 27-year-old Taurus Williams of Greenfield was leaving the bathroom at Alberti's Bar and Grill when Villanueva came into the bathroom and, wielding a Swiss Army knife with a 3-to-4-inch blade, twice slashed Williams across the jugular, inching down to Williams' throat, leaving two deep lacerations, Officer Richard Brook said Saturday.

    After the alleged attack, Williams was taken by ambulance to Baystate Franklin Medical Center. Williams was unable to tell police what happened on Friday night, Brook said, adding that the incident is being investigated and a motive hasn't been determined yet.

    Police arrested Villanueva at the scene after he was identified by more than one witness, Brook said.

    On Sunday, hospital spokeswoman Amy Swisher said she had no information available on Williams.

    Alberti's Bar and Grill owner Rick Regan said that in his 11 years owning Alberti's, he'd never had an incident like this happen before.

    "It can happen anywhere at any time. Unfortunately, it happened at Alberti's," Regan said.

    The knife Villanueva allegedly used to attack Williams was found underneath the bar.

    Villanueva was being held at the Franklin County House of Corrections on $20,000 bail. He is scheduled to appear in court today for arraignment. Villanueva was charged with assault with attempt to murder, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and indecent exposure.

    When police first arrived on the scene, Villanueva was outside the bar. An officer stayed with him while another officer went into the bar to investigate the incident, said Sgt. Ralph Odom. While waiting outside, Villanueva dropped his pants to his ankles and relieved himself on Main Street, although a police officer was standing nearby, said Odom.

    Regan said that he's considering ceasing to offer entertainment. Because entertainment draws more people, there's a greater potential for problems, he said.

    Alberti's had been moderately busy, with a crowd of about 50 people on Friday night, Regan said. There had been a DJ playing Top 40 music.

    Another good reason to do your drinking at home! Too many strange things seem to happen in bars.

    When I go out I actively attempt to stay out of bar bathrooms.
    The only people you'll find in their are drunk people with reduced sense and sensibleness.
    I've seen sooo many people get jumped and owned in bathrooms.
