A 21-year-old man was arrested Tuesday and charged with stabbing his mother's boyfriend following a family dispute.

Jan C. Guerra-Santos, of 13 Morris St., Apartment 2, Amsterdam, was charged with second-degree assault, a felony, and was held for arraignment. The victim was not identified.

The stabbing was discovered after Amsterdam police responded to the corner of Kimball Street and Guy Park Avenue around 3:25 p.m. Tuesday for the call.

Detectives, patrol officers, and Amsterdam Police Chief Gregory Culick, along with personnel from the Greater Amsterdam Volunteer Ambulance Corps and the Amsterdam Fire Department, arrived where a royal blue Jeep Patriot sat parked on the right side of the road, across from the United Lutheran Church.

According to a news release from the department, police observed an "unresponsive male in the driver's seat of the vehicle."

GAVAC and AFD personnel attended to the man, who was then transported to St. Mary's Hospital, the chief said.

The driver's side floor of the vehicle was a pool of blood.

Det. Lt. Kurt Conroy said the wound came from an altercation between the victim and the victim on John Street.

Culick said the victim attempted to drive himself to St. Mary's Hospital following the altercation, with his teen nephew in the car, but was losing too much blood and pulled over.

The teenager called 911, the chief said.

Guerra-Santos and the victim had been arguing over what police described as family issues.

Conroy said the man had been stabilized and was transported to Albany Medical Center for non-life-threatening injuries.

The weapon is believed to be a large kitchen knife, the release detailed, though the it had yet to be recovered as of Tuesday evening.
