Liberty - A Liberty man was slashed across the face during a robbery Tuesday afternoon in the Village of Liberty, police said.
Police arrested Kenneth Manley Jr., 39, of Liberty.
Liberty police said the victim, who is 24, was on Chestnut Street when Manley accosted him a little before 5 p.m., slashed him across the left cheek with a pocketknife and took $3.
After witnesses reported a fight in progress, police found the victim walking on Main Street. They said it appears Manley targeted the victim because one of his relatives owed Manley money.
The man who was attacked was taken to Catskill Regional Medical Center in Harris, where he needed stitches to close the wound.
A short time later, police said, they tracked Manley down at the Champlin Avenue home of Cynthia Lowitz, 21. Lowitz knew Manley was wanted on a felony charge, they said, but she refused to cooperate with them.
Manley was charged with first-degree robbery, second-degree assault and third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, felonies.
Lowitz was charged with second-degree hindering prosecution, a felony.
Both were arraigned and sent to Sullivan County Jail pending July 31 Village Court appearances. Manley was held without bail; bail was set at $3,500 for Lowitz.
