Authorities say 34-year-old Caileen Jones was charged with second-degree assault, a felony, in connection with the weekend attack.

Investigators say Jones allegedly stabbed a 60-year-old man in an apartment on Evergreen Street around 3 a.m. Saturday.

Endicott police say the man was seriously injured. An acquaintance drove him to Binghamton General Hospital. He later was transferred to Wilson Medical Center in Johnson City, where he was admitted.

Detectives say Jones is believed to have used a sword-type knife that was about 18 to 24 inches in length to stab the man during a domestic dispute.

The attack was not reported immediately after it occurred. Police began investigating the incident when they were notified of the severe injury by a hospital employee about two-and-a-half hours after the incident.

Police say Jones was taken into custody about six hours after the stabbing happened.

Two knives were seized from the apartment.

Jones was arraigned in Endicott village court and sent to Broome County Jail without bail.
