City police charge man in May 30 stabbings

Dunkirk police have released additional information regarding the stabbings in which three individuals, including the man charged, were injured.

Twain Buchanan-Scott, 34, has been charged with first-degree burglary, second-degree assault and fourth-degree criminal mischief in the May 30 incident.

At approximately 3:30 a.m., Dunkirk police were called to 123 Lake Shore Drive West for a disturbance, while arriving patrols were advised of a possible stabbing at that location.

Patrols were able to make entry into the apartment where they located suspect Buchanan-Scott inside the apartment armed with a knife standing over a female victim with multiple stab wounds to her body.

Patrol officers were able to quickly take Buchanan-Scott into custody without incident. Patrols then located another male victim inside the apartment with stab wounds as well, both of which were treated by Dunkirk Fire Department and Alstar Ambulance for non-life-threatening injuries. Buchanan-Scott was transported to UPMC Chautauqua in Jamestown and was later arrested Wednesday. He was arraigned in front of Judge John Kuzdale and held on $100,000 cash and $200,000 property bail.

City police were assisted by Fredonia Police Department, Dunkirk Fire Department and Alstar Ambulance.
