Khaliq Gale, a suspect in the Sept. 28 non-fatal stabbing on Stewart Avenue, has turned himself in, according to the Ithaca Police Department.
IPD identified Gale as a suspect last week, and added that he was believed to be accompanied by another, unidentified man who allegedly produced a handgun during the altercation. Authorities have not yet revealed whether they have learned the identity of the second suspect.
Gale, 21, was accompanied by an attorney when he turned himself in, IPD says. He was booked on one charge of Assault in the Second Degree, a Class D Felony, and Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Fourth Degree, a Class A Misdemeanor.
After he surrendered, Gale was arraigned in Ithaca City Court and then sent to Tompkins County Jail in lieu of $1,000 cash bail of $2,000 property bond. The court also issued an Order of Protection on Gale, according to IPD.
This arrest is the first in two separate stabbing cases, following violent incidents that occurred one month apart on or near Cornell’s campus.
