Stab in ‘love triangle’ leads to attempted murder against local woman
A woman from the Hudson Valley has been charged with charges including attempted murder in connection with the alleged stabbing of a woman during what could have been a “love triangle” disagreement.
Ariana Sanchez, 22, of Newburgh, was charged on Monday, July 19, Orange County District Attorney David M. Hoovler said.
The indictment alleges that on Saturday, June 19, Sanchez repeatedly stabbed another woman on multiple occasions, including in the chest, back and leg in the Lake Street neighborhood in the city of Newburgh.
Following the attack, the victim was admitted to St. Luke Hospital.
Police are investigating whether the confrontation involved a man, the prosecutor’s office said.
Anyone with information regarding the incident is urged to contact the Newburgh City Police Department.
Sanchez was arrested by the Newburgh City Police Department on Tuesday, July 13, after an investigation into the incident.
She is currently being held at the Orange County Jail instead of a bond that had been set at $ 100,000 in cash or $ 100,000 in partially secured bond or $ 250,000 in unsecured bond.
“Those who use guns and violence to settle disputes deserve stiff penalties,” Hoovler said. “I commend the Newburgh City Police Department for their investigation into this matter. The violence on our streets, whether caused by knives or guns, simply cannot be tolerated. “
Sanchez faces 25 years in prison for attempted murder.
