ONEONTA – An Oneonta man was arrested following a manhunt into the Oneonta railyards after he allegedly stabbed an acquaintance, Oneonta Police Chief reported this morning.

Brian J. Boore, 40, Oneonta, was arrested after police responded to a call to a residence on Burnside Avenue of a “stabbing in progress” by a housemate of the victim. When they arrived, they found the victim “bleeding profusely” from multiple lacerations.

Shortly before police arrived, Boore allegedly fled into the railyards, and with assistance from University Police and State Police, including the drone unit, OPD began a manhunt.

“They flew the drone over the railyards,” said Brenner.”And when they landed, he came out of the brush,”

Boore was charged with assault in the first degree and burglary and transported to the Otsego County Jail. “We believe he went to the residence with the intent of hurting the victim,” said Brenner.

The victim was taken to Bassett Hospital and underwent emergency surgery. According to Brenner, he is in stable condition in the Intensive Care Unit.

    Well I tried to leave a reply to the posts about monsters walking among us and how hard it is for those brave, righteous police officers to operate under the scrutiny of today’s political atmosphere. But it didn’t post. So all I will say is if you want to hear the facts of the case from the accused himself (who, by the way, has been back walking among us since January 15th), just email me at
