TROY, N.Y.» City po­lice said they are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a stab­bing that oc­curred Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon on Hill Street.

Po­lice said that around 12:23 p.m. of­fi­cers on pa­trol to a call had their at­ten­tion drawn to a man — D’An­dre Jones, 37, of Troy — chas­ing a woman on Hill Street.

As­sis­tant Po­lice Chief Daniel DeWolf said of­fi­cers ob­served the uniden­ti­fied woman bleed­ing and leapt from their pa­trol ve­hi­cle to as­sist the woman.

A news re­lease said the fe­male was helped by offi- cers as Jones fled on foot. DeWolf said ad­di­tional of­fi­cers ar­rived to aid the fe­male as other of­fi­cers pur­sued Jones.

Po­lice said the pur­suit ended at 8 Tren­ton St. in south Troy, where Jones bar­ri­caded him­self in­side of a room.

DeWolf said the Troy Po­lice Depart­ment Emer­gency Re­sponse Team, as well as ne­go­tia­tors were ac­ti­vated to as­sist in ap­pre­hend­ing Jones. Af­ter a pe­riod of time, Jones came out peace­fully, the re­lease said.

Po­lice said Jones was taken into cus­tody and was trans­ported to the sta­tion for pro­cess­ing.

The fe­male vic­tim was trans­ported to a lo­cal hospi­tal for treat­ment. Po­lice said her cur­rent con­di­tion is not known as of late Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon.

The Troy po­lice Depart­ment said they re­ceived help from nu­mer­ous other lo­cal agen­cies that came to as­sist in keep­ing the scene safe and for crowd con­trol. Those agen­cies in­clude, the Rens­se­laer County Sher­iff’s Depart­ment, Water­vliet PD, Co­hoes PD, Green Is­land PD, NYSP and the Colonie PD.

DeWolf said the in­ves­ti­ga­tion is still un­der­way as of late Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon and that charges are still pend­ing.
