Man wakes to being stabbed in Rochester, search leads to arrest


ROCHESTER - A transient man is under arrest, accused of repeatedly stabbing another man as he slept in his bed early Friday in a First Street home.

Police said a 19-year-old man, whose name they did not release, woke up just before 2 a.m. at his 21 First St. home because Lashate Daniel Word, 20, was stabbing him. The victim was able to fend off his attacker, but not before suffering cuts and puncture wounds to his neck, arms, torso and legs.

The victim was transported to the hospital for treatment of injuries police describe as not life-threatening. He identified Wood as his assailant who fled the scene, police said.

A state police K9 was brought in to try and track down Word but was unable to find him.

A little after 6 a.m. Friday morning, police received a call from Word's mother reporting he was at her 12 Silver St., Apt A. residence, and that he was out of control. Police said Word was gone by the time officers arrived, but they checked the area, found him on Winter Street and arrested him.

Word is charged with first-degree assault; criminal threatening, three counts; simple assault and attempted simple assault; resisting arrest or detention, two counts; criminal mischief, three counts, and possession of a controlled/narcotic drug.

He is being held without bail pending a hearing later today in 7th Circuit Court, Rochester District Division.
