Two Stabbed, One Kidnapped in Malta Home Invasions

MALTA — Two people were stabbed and a third person kidnapped at knifepoint in connection with two separate home invasions that occurred in the town of Milton early Friday, March 10.  Four suspects accused of playing a role in the incident each face more than a dozen charges. 

The four suspects are alleged to have forced their way into a Milton home, assaulted and kidnapped a resident at knife point and forced him to take them to a second residence, according to Investigator Matthew Robinson, of the Saratoga County Sheriff Investigations Unit. 

The suspects subsequently forced their way into a second home where they proceeded to assault two residents, and damaged property inside the home. The latter two victims also suffered stabbing injuries during the attack, authorities said. 

The suspects were taken into custody by Sheriff’s deputies shortly after fleeing the scene. Two people — one a victim of the stabbing attack and one an “assailant” — were treated at Saratoga Hospital for injuries, and subsequently released from care.

Arthur E. Brust Jr., 18, and Laurie M. Cannelli, 52 — both of Ballston Spa — and Linda M. Sims, 23, and Timothy P. Sims, 26 — both of Malta — were charged with one count each of kidnapping, conspiracy, and criminal mischief, two counts each of menacing, and criminal possession of a weapon, and three counts each of assault, and first-degree burglary.     

Each of the four suspects was arraigned at Greenfield Town Court and sent to Saratoga County Jail for lack of bail. The defendants will return to the Milton Town Court at a later date, according to the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Department.
