Prosecutors say a Johnson City resident has admitted he intended to injure his child's grandfather by stabbing him with a knife and a broken piece of glass.

32-year-old David Maiella pleaded guilty Monday in Broome County court to a felony count of second-degree assault.

Johnson City police had arrested Maiella in connection with a February 27 attack on a man in a home on Pratt Avenue in the village.

Investigators had said the man - whose name was not released - was repeatedly slashed and stabbed with a large piece of glass during a disturbance.

Police were sent to the residence around 11 a.m. on a Sunday to investigate a reported domestic dispute.

When officers arrived, they saw Maiella attacking the other man with the piece of glass. They took Maiella into custody without further incident.

The man who was assaulted sustained several slash and stab wounds. A young child who also was in the home at the time of the dispute was injured in a fall. Both the man and child were taken to Wilson Medical Center for treatment.

Under a plea agreement, Maiella is to be sentenced four years in state prison followed by five years post-release supervision. Sentencing has been scheduled for November 10.
