New York State Court Worker Stabbed by Colleague

A New York State court officer suffered stab wounds to the neck when she was attacked by a male colleague during an apparent off-duty domestic situation. The incident occurred in Staten Island.

The female victim was taken to the hospital and was listed in stable condition. The male attacker which is also a state court officer was arrested by police after the incident which occurred on Moffett Street at four in the morning. Police believe the incident occurred between the two due to a broken relationship.

The attacker was identified as Eduardo Vias, 35, who allegedly engaged in a fight with his girlfriend, a 38-year old female court officer. The argument began to escalate and Vias attacked in with a knife to the neck. Paramedics responded to the scene and took the victim to Staten Island University. Her injuries were said to be serious despite her stable status. Vias was charged with assault, criminal possession of a weapon, and unlawful imprisonment. He was arraigned at Staten Island Criminal Court.

The Court off Administration, Vias’ employer, confirmed he had been on the job since 2004 and his girlfriend was also still employed as a court officer at Manhattan Supreme Court. A representative noted Vias has been required to relinquish his gun and will likely face suspension once he has been formally charged in the knife attack.
