Bail set at $47k for man accused of stabbing ex-girlfriend in Utica

By WKTV News

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - The man Utica Police say stabbed his ex-girlfriend multiple times at a home in South Utica over the weekend was arraigned in Utica City Court on Tuesday.

Nicholas Tuttle, 21, of Cassville faces a misdemeanor charge of criminal possession of a weapon and a Class D Felony Assault charge.

According to police, shortly after midnight on Sunday, September 4, several officers responded to Edgewood Road in Utica where they found the female victim on the front lawn of the residence, her shirt saturated with blood they believed to be from multiple stab wounds.

The victim gave officers a description of the suspect - her ex-boyfriend, Nicholas Tuttle - who they said had fled the scene before their arrival. The victim was brought to a local hospital where she underwent surgery for the multiple stab wounds and was last listed in stable condition.

Around 2:30 a.m. that same night, a UPD officer responded to Route 8 South to meet New Hartford Police, who had responded to a motor vehicle accident near the Washington Mills exit. When UPD arrived, they realized that the driver was Tuttle and he was taken into custody.

He was treated at a local hospital and held in Utica Police Lockup until his arraignment Tuesday morning in City Court.

He returns to court on Thursday, September 8.
