FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE #22-08 Issued on: 012/12/22 @ 11:30 a.m.
On Sunday, December 11, 2022 at 6:46 p.m., the New Windsor Police Department responded to an apartment on Copper Court for a reported stabbing. Upon arrival, Officers located a chaotic scene with several individuals present. Officers also located two individuals that were injured and bleeding. The injured were a 32-year old female that had a puncture wound to her abdomen and a 51-year old male that had a puncture wound to his shoulder.
Both injured individuals were transported to Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital in Newburgh by New Windsor Emergency Medical Services ambulance for treatment. Both were treated at the hospital and released.
Investigation at the scene and at the hospital by New Windsor Police Officers and Detectives developed probable cause to believe that the 51-year old male had stabbed the 32-year old female with a knife causing her injury. Exactly how the 51-year old male became injured remains under investigation.
The arrested 51-year old male is identified as Gerald D. Jackson, of New Windsor NY. He was charged with Assault in the second degree (class D-Felony) and Criminal Possession of a weapon in the third degree (class D-Felony). He was arraigned before City of Newburgh Judge Joanne M. Forbes and released to probation to appear December 13, 2022 in the Town of New Windsor Court at 4:00 p.m. A stay away order of protection was issued.
A criminal charge is merely an allegation that a defendant has committed a violation of the criminal law, and it is not evidence of guilt. All defendants are presumed innocent and entitled to a fair trial, during which it will be the State of New York’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
We will not be releasing the booking photograph of Mr. Jackson due to it now being prohibited under New York Public Officers Law, Section 89, which was amended in mid-2019 to prohibit the release of booking photographs due to it being an “unwarranted invasion of personal privacy”.
