A violent assault Monday morning in the town of Torrey that seriously injured a 67 year old woman has shaken the tiny Yates County community. Sheriff Ron Spike gave us an update on the victim, who was allegedly bludgeoned and stabbed by dangerous instruments by 37 year old Paul Khouzam, of Branchport.
Khouzam was arrested Sunday evening as a mentally ill person that was considered an endangerment to himself and others and was taken to Soldiers and Sailors Hospital before being released several hours later. We asked Sheriff Spike if Khouzam had any prior arrests before Sunday night.
Khouzam is jailed on charges of assault, burglary and aggravated cruelty to an animal, all felonies
