Man Who Tried To Stab New York’s Law-And-Order Candidate Lee Zeldin Was Already Released From Custody


The man who tried to stab New York gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin at a Thursday night campaign event focused on reforming lax bail policies was released from custody “within hours of his arrest” in accordance with New York law.

The suspect, David G. Jakubonis, 43, of Fairport, N.Y., stormed a trailer stage at Zeldin’s campaign event in Perinton, New York, in an attempt to stab the Republican. Footage of the assault shows Zeldin grabbing Jakubonis’s wrist to stop the blade before members of Zeldin’s campaign staff quickly tackled and restrained the assailant onstage.

Jakubonis was arrested and charged with attempted assault in the second degree, but as Zeldin predicted, the attacker was quickly released from custody.
