Police: Fight Over Woman Leads to Stabbing in Cortlandt Manor

A Mohegan Lake man and his girlfriend were arrested this morning in connection to a stabbing incident in Cortlandt Manor.

Allen Slavin, 37, and Jamie Sniffen, 28, both of Mohegan Lake, are scheduled to appear in Cortlandt town court after Slavin allegedly went to the home of another 45-year-old Cortlandt Manor man and stabbed him earlier today.

Slavin was charged with second-degree assault, a felony, and Sniffen was charged with hindering prosecution, a misdemeanor. Some time before 5:21 a.m., state police said Slavin arrived at the victim’s residence to find  his live-in  girlfriend, Sniffen, who was inside. After being let inside the home, Slavin allegedly attacked the victim. The victim’s pitbull attacked Slavin , but Slavin stabbed the victim in the stomach with a kitchen knife and pistol whipped with a pellet gun, according to police.

Slavin, who also received a stab wound to his right  arm during the altercation, allegedly fled the scene and threw the pellet gun into a wooded area, according to police. Sniffen allegedly stayed behind to clean up the bloody crime scene with bleach, a mop and a towel.

Slavin went back to the alleged crime scene, picked up Sniffen and returned home. Police responded to the scene after receiving a 911 call and arrived at the victim’s home at about 5:20 a.m. Police conducted a search for Slavin and Sniffen after interviewing the victim and located them at their residence in Mohegan Lake.

Slavin was transported to the Hudson Valley Hospital Center, where he received several sutures for his arm wound and was released.

The victim was transported to the Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla and underwent surgery for his stomach wound. He is currently listed in good condition.

Slavin and Sniffen are currently in police custody and are awaiting arraignment.

Dana NOT sure you really have all the facts! She stated today that she was cheating on Slavin, she pocket dialed him. But for the real facts!!!!! He is a poor excuse for a man. He has not held a job for longer then 6 mos, he owes more money to people and Putnam Valley and Lake Peekskill then a bank holds in the vault. He has had 3 different Order Of Protection's against him. He beat his own Cutlass with a golf club because he was mad. As for helping with her kids that is just funny!!!! He has a teenager that last seen 15 years ago after saying he'd be back in a few days and never saw him again. Owes over $32,000. in back support. Has another younger child also has nothing to do with. I'm sorry but these are the facts!!! And an extremelty poor defenition of a "GOOD GUY" You may want to re-check your facts.......

She was cheating on him with a bag of dope or a dope of a man? She should check her skank ass into rehab again. It's the only hope.

Well said Kim!!! I find it funny how Dana is sticking up for a person who stabbed another in hein sight he could have killed this person but he is a good guy. This good guy has the worst temper and never owns up to his bad tempers because he had it ruff as a child and poor Allen!!! Seriously he is so responsible because he had key word had, a job he woke up to go to work and saw his GF was gone. He knew where to find her so then he knew about the drugs.... He is helping some crack whore with her kids but yet gave up on himself and his kids years ago!!! You can claim to know him but really you have NO clue. Yes we all had good times together when we were younger and irresponsible but the majority if us grew up and took control of our lives and the baby mama did the best thing she could of and took her son and raised a beautiful man and he does not have to be in this drama!!!! Thank god that child has a responsible mother!!! Don't know about the other kid, never knew he had another one... I am privileged to have witnessed his son's birth and That mama is an awesome friend of mine!!! Reality is this is no ones fault but there own and they both need therapy, rehab, anger management , jail time, whatever it takes to see the light and grow the F up already!!!
