SALEM (CBS/AP) — A man suspected of slashing a female student on a Salem State University shuttle bus then stabbing the driver when he came to her aid is being held without bail in upstate New York.
Timothy Wells, 25, of Woburn was arrested at about 10 p.m. Wednesday by New York State Police, about two hours after his car broke down outside of a toll booth on the Taconic Parkway in Chatham, N.Y., near the Massachusetts border.
According to New York State Police, the trooper who responded to the scene noted that Wells was “easily agitated and was inconsistent” while speaking with the officer.
Wells, who is wanted for two counts of attempted murder, was arraigned by the Town of Livingston Justice Court and remanded to Columbia County Jail without bail, pending extradition to Massachusetts.
