UVM Stabbings

New York State Police

New York State Police say they have apprehended the man they believe stabbed a state trooper in the neck with a steak knife at Albany’s Empire State Plaza on Sunday.

At a press conference this afternoon, a police spokesman said 18-year-old Eric L. Green was located by state police at the corner of Western and Washington Avenues in Albany shortly before 12:30 p.m. this afternoon. They say Green initially identified himself under another name before being taken into custody without incident.

Police say a plan to rob a University of Vermont student of drugs has resulted in two arrests, two stabbings and a beating.

UVM Police said two men traveled from Pittsburgh, Pa., over the weekend to visit a friend at the university and discussed a plan to rob an acquaintance of drugs.

They said 19-year-old Joshua Mossburg of Pittsburgh, who was waiting in an SUV, was arrested on charges of assault and robbery. He was arraigned Tuesday.
