>Jamestown police officer seriously hurt in crash

GERRY -- A Jamestown police officer was seriously hurt Thursday morning when his patrol car crashed into a pole, state police said.

Officer Glenn Boskat was being treated in the intensive care unit in Hamot Medical Center in Erie, Pa. His condition is unknown.

Troopers said Boskat was driving north on Route 60, near Terry Road, at about 8:20 a.m. when his patrol car veered off the road and struck a pole. The impact of the crash split the patrol car into several pieces.

Rescuers removed Boskat from the wreckage, and he was flown to the hospital. Boskat was reportedly driving his patrol car to Buffalo to deliver equipment to be repaired.

State police said the cause of the crash is still being investigated, adding that they are looking into several causes, including a medical condition, mechanical failure and driver error.

>Two arrests made in Jamestown stabbing

JAMESTOWN -- Two people have been arrested in connection with a reported stabbing on the city's north side late Tuesday afternoon.

Elba Torres, no age given, of Hamilton Street, allegedly provided the knife used in the attack. She and an unidentified attacker were arrested Wednesday morning, and more arrests are expected.

City police said the incident apparently stemmed from an ongoing "neighborhood feud" in the area of East Fifth and Hamilton Streets.

Officers were called to an East Fifth Street location just before 4:30 p.m. Tuesday and discovered the victim, who was not identified.

Police believe years of disagreements between the neighbors spilled over last week with a baseball bat attack, and now the stabbing. The victim was taken to WCA Hospital for treatment of his wounds.
