Schuyler man indicted on attempted murder charge after Geneseo Walmart stabbing

The Schuyler County man accused of stabbing a woman at Walmart in Geneseo has been indicted on an attempted murder charge, as well as a number of others by a grand jury.

Gregory Cunningham, 24, was charged with second-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault, and third-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

Cunningham stabbed a woman inside the store several times. She ran for help to the front of the store, and Cunningham was later taken into custody.

The victim told police she thought Cunningham was going to ask her a question. Instead, “he grabbed me with his hand and kind of pinned me against the dairy shelves” before stabbing her multiple times.

Police said Cunningham didn’t know the victim, which made the attack even more unusual.

He was remanded to the Livingston County Jail on $50,000 cash bail or $100,000 bond. A stay away order of protection was issued on behalf of the victim.

His next court date is scheduled for September 29th. If convicted, he faces 5-25 years in prison.
