Binghamton Man Charged In Downtown Stabbing
A resident of Binghamton’s West Side has been arrested in connection with the stabbing of a man on a downtown street.
Authorities say 31-year-old Jamahri Pope of Chapin Street has been charged with assault and criminal contempt.
Investigators say Pope is suspected of attacking a 44-year-old man last Friday afternoon.
Police say the stabbing occurred near Susquehanna and Carroll streets.
The injured man, who apparently had been walking with Pope’s former girlfriend, was taken to Wilson Medical Center in Johnson City.

A knife believed to have been used in the assault was recovered by officers.
Pope was arraigned in Binghamton city court and remanded to Broome County Jail.
