A man has been charged with stabbing his brother in Airmont, according to police.

Officers say they rushed to a home in village around 8 p.m. on Monday and found a 32-year-old man who had been stabbed several times in the torso allegedly by his 33-year-old brother.

After removing the victim from the scene and sending him to the hospital for treatment, police found the suspect partially barricaded in a bedroom. They say the suspect tried to flee the house through a second-floor window, but was chased down outside the house. He was eventually subdued by a TASER.

A neighbor described the scene for News 12. "I noticed that there was a person laying on the sidewalk bleeding profusely from his neck. And I talked to the father and he told me that his sons got into a fight, and the one son stabbed his other son. So then he proceeded to barricade himself into the bedroom where he wouldn't come out, and he told the cops, 'you're going to have to shoot me.' He jumped out of the window, and ran out to Airmont Road, where they eventually had to Tase him," says the neighbor, who did not want to be identified.

The suspect, who name has not been released yet, is being charged with attempted murder in the second degree, assault in the first degree and criminal possession of a weapon.

There is no word on the victim’s status at this time.
