Two men sought for allegedly stabbing on Jamestown's eastside early this morning...

Jamestown police are searching for two men who allegedly stabbed another man during a home invasion-robbery early this morning on the city's eastside.  City Police were called to the scene at 100 Hedges Street just after 1 AM for a reported stabbing.  On arrival... officers were told that two men entered the home... and, stabbed one of the occupants in the chest before robbing them of cash and other property.  City Police Captain Bob Samuelson says the suspects wore clothing to cover their faces... but, one is reportedly a black male with darker skin... and, the other man had lighter skin.  He says the suspects fled before police arrived.  However... they say the victim and location were apparently targeted by the suspects.  The male victim is being treated at WCA Hospital... where he's in stable condition.  If you have any information on the incident... call JPD at 483-7537... or their confidential tip line at 483-TIPS... that's 483-8477.    


Two more Heroin, opiate drug forums scheduled for August 4 in Chautauqua County...

Two more public forums on the on-going problem with Heroin and other opiate drug use and abuse in Chautauqua County will be held early next month.  That from County Executive Vince Horrigan and Mental Hygiene Services Director Patricia Brinkman... who says the forums will be held in Dunkirk and Jamestown on Monday, Aug. 4.  Horrigan says the morning session will be held from 9 a.m. to Noon at Jamestown Community College's city campus... while the second one will be held from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at JCC's North County Training Center in Dunkirk.  More than 200 people attended an initial forum in Mayville last March despite blizzard-like conditions.... which points to how big an issue this is.  Horrigan says that's why he's made developing a comprehensive plan to deal with all aspects of the problem a priority.  He says the initial forum produced a Steering Committee that developed five smaller "Action Teams" to deal with all aspects... from prevention to law enforcement and the courts.  For more information on those teams... or the upcoming forums... call the county's Department of Mental Hygiene at 753-4104.
