Police responded around 11:15 p.m. to the Motel 6 on South Dorset Road and found a 48-year-old New Lebanon man stabbed in his abdomen. Officers provided aid to the victim until medics arrived and took him to a local hospital, said Troy Chief of Police Shawn McKinney.
The victim’s condition was not available. No one else was injured.
Statements from witnesses and others involved indicate the victim was “beating” on the suspect’s door and demanded the three beers he left in Martin’s room be returned, McKinney said.
