A Cortland man out on parole was arrested Monday (April 22) night after an attempted stabbing at a residence on South Avenue in the City of Cortland.
Police say 25-year-old Tyler Emm tried to stab a 35-year-old woman at the residence and also took her cell phone from her when she attempted to call for help.
Emm fled just before Police arrived and they set up a perimeter, chasing him through yards and over fences with the help of K-9 units.
They eventually found him hiding in a yard on Frederick Street and arrested him with no further incident.
Emm was hit with several charges, including a felony criminal possession charge.
He’s currently being held at the Cortland Police Department awaiting arraignment.
