A 27-year-old Auburn man is facing felony assault and criminal possession of weapon charges after he allegedly tried to stab a man in the chest Saturday.
According to Auburn Police, the unidentified victim invited Leo Burgess into his Pulaski Street home early Saturday morning after just meeting him. Burgess allegedly tried to stab the victim, who defended himself and ended up receiving a minor cut to his thumb. Burgess is then accused of punching the victim several times in the head and face. He was arrested a short time later on Van Anden Street.
Burgess was sent to Cayuga County Jail following his arraignment.
