A 29-year-old Hilton man is charged with attempted murder after a stabbing in Brockport. It happened around 4:15 a.m. at the Willowbrook Apartments on West Avenue in the village.

Police say they were called to the complex for the report of a domestic dispute and possible stabbing.

When officers arrived on the scene, they found a man who had been stabbed located within the complex. While officers were providing treatment to him, other officers were able to locate a man they believed to be a person of interest. Police identify him as 29-year-old Michael Pacheco of Hilton.

Investigators say they later learned that Pacheco was the ex-boyfriend of a woman who lives in the complex and he had gone to her apartment and confronted his ex and the person who was visiting her. During the confrontation, police say Pacheco stabbed the victim. The man was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital with what police say are non-life threatening injures.

Police say Pacheco also assaulted his ex-girlfriend and their two-year-old child. Both were taken to Lakeside Hospital for treatment and were later released.

Pacheco is charged with attempted murder, burglary, two counts of assault and endangering the welfare of a child.
Pacheco will be arraigned Thursday afternoon.
