Bloodied Man Near Hampton Bays Graveyard

It was like a scene from a Grade B horror flick except it was all-too-real to the bloodied victim.

Southampton Town police answered a call near Good Ground Cemetery in Hampton Bays on November 26 just after dark — about 6 PM — only to find a stumbling man, face and neck covered in blood. He told police he was stabbed during an altercation nearby.

Emergency personnel rushed the victim to the hospital; his identity was not revealed.

Police said they quickly apprehended the suspected stabber, Douglas Brownson, 50, of Hampton Bays and charged him with a felony, second-degree assault, and another for criminal possession of a weapon.

He was held for arraignment.
