CENTEREACH, N.Y. (PIX11) — A man was stabbed multiple times by a jogger on Long Island Thursday night, police said.
The 49-year-old victim was driving a car, with three passengers inside, into the entrance of a gas station in the vicinity of Middle Country and Holbrook roads in Centereach when the attack unfolded. Matthew Ulloa, 18, was jogging past the entrance before he yelled at the victim, according to authorities. The driver then stepped out of his vehicle to confront Ulloa around 8 p.m., police said.
The pair got into a fight and Ulloa stabbed the victim 11 times with a knife, officials said. The victim was taken to a hospital for treatment of serious injuries.
Detectives said Ulloa, a Ronkonkoma resident, was charged with second-degree assault. His arraignment was set at First District Court in Central Islip on Friday.
