GRANVILLE, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say an upstate New York man ambushed his girlfriend and stabbing her so violently that the knife broke during the attack.

Police tell The Post-Star of Glens Falls ( ) that 42-year-old Jonathan Vilbrin, of Granville, jumped the woman around 6 a.m. Tuesday outside her home in Granville, located on the Vermont border 55 miles northeast of Albany.
