HIGHGATE — A 29-year-old woman was charged with aggravated assault following an incident in Highgate yesterday. 

Authorities were notified about a stabbing incident on Gore Road at around 12:30 a.m

Caitlin Bockus, of Swanton, told police that she had just stabbed someone, and her ex-boyfriend was bringing that individual to the hospital.

It was later found that an altercation occurred between Bockus and Amy Plattner, 41, of St. Albans.

Bockus told police that she stabbed Plattner in self-defense after being attacked, but according to Plattner and the ex-boyfriend, Bockus was the aggressor.

Her injuries are considered serious but stable, and she was able to speak with the troopers at the hospital to give her side of the story.
