State police arrested a 32-year-old after a stabbing at a gas station in the village of Palmyra.
Police were called around 9:30 p.m. on Saturday for the report of an assault at the Speedway Gas Station located in the village of Palmyra.
Troopers discovered that there was an argument between Martin Hillenbrand, 32, and a 17-year-old male. The argument allegedly started over Hillenbrand leaving two young children- ages 3- and 10-months unattended in his vehicle.
At one point during the physical altercation- the 17-year-old struck Hillenbrand in the face. That’s when Hillenbrand produced a folding knife and stabbed the 17-year-old in the thigh and abdomen.
The 17-year-old, who was not identified, was driven by individuals that were with him to a residence where a 911 call was placed. The 17-year-old was then airlifted to Strong Memorial Hospital.
At this point, the victim is in stable condition.
Hillenbrand was arrested for first-degree assault, criminal possession of a weapon, and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
He was held pending arraignment.
