A Portville man is charged with attempted murder in connection with an incident earlier this month on the railroad tracks near Weston’s Mills.

Sheriff’s deputies say on the night of October 13 27-year-old Shawn Wright of Olean was walking on the tracks when 19-year-old Jesse Woodruff stabbed him in the neck and robbed him.

Wright flagged down a fly car for Olean Trans Am and was taken to Olean General Hospital. He was later transferred to ECMC.

Woodruff is also charged with robbery and assault. He was sent to jail on $50,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in Portville Town Court on Wednesday.
