An Oceanside man has been arrested for slashing and wounding his mother’s 60-year-old boyfriend during an argument that turned physical early Sunday morning, Nassau County police said.
Jimmy Godsey, 28, was charged with assault and criminal possession of a weapon.
Police said the victim asked Godsey not to go into his mother’s room at their Sunnybrook Drive home when a fight broke out, the two began pushing each other and Godsey slashed the victim with a folding knife in the neck at 12:45 a.m.
Godsey ran out of the house and surrendered when officers arrived shortly later.
The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment of a non-life threatening injury.
Godsey will be arraigned Sunday at First District Court in Hempstead.
