NORTHUMBERLAND — A man may be in for a long recovery after he was stabbed in the abdomen during a Nov. 18 domestic incident.

Saratoga County sheriff’s deputies arrested Jamie Tripp, 35, of Route 4 North just outside Schuylerville for second-degree assault.

Sheriff’s department Investigator Rick L. Capasso said the victim was stabbed once in the abdomen with a kitchen knife. He was initially transported to Saratoga Hospital but transported to Albany Medical Center.

Tripp was charged with second-degree assault, a felony that could carry a sentence of up to seven years in prison.

Saratoga County District Attorney James A. Murphy III said the victim in the case will likely make a full recovery, but that the knife wound may have punctured his liver.

Murphy said because it was a domestic incident, he could not discuss many of the details of what led up to the incident, calling it “complicated.”

Tripp was remanded to Saratoga County Jail, but has since been released on $10,000 cash or $20,000 bail bond.
