TOWN OF LOCKPORT — The Sunday morning stabbing on Dysinger Road that sent a man to ECMC occurred during a robbery, according to New York State Police.

NYSP and the Niagara County Sheriff’s Department were called to an apartment building at 6604 Dysinger Road around 11:50 a.m. to investigate the incident. Investigation revealed that the victim of the assault, 34-year-old Justin West had been robbed of cash at knifepoint and stabbed in the leg by Derrick Powell, 31.

West was transported to Erie County Medical Center via Mercy Flight for a wound to his lower leg and treated while responding troopers and deputies began to search for Powell, who had fled on foot after the incident. He was eventually located hiding in a closet of a nearby apartment building.

Powell stands charged with first-degree robbery, first-degree assault and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon. He was arraigned before Lockport Town Justice Cheryl Antkowiak and remanded to the Niagara County Jail in lieu of $20,000 bail. He is to return to court on Thursday.
