LOCKPORT – A Cottage Street man was arrested Tuesday after he allegedly lunged at a woman with a serrated kitchen knife over the weekend.

David J. Weeks, 53, was charged with third-degree assault and second-degree menacing, as well as unlawful possession of marijuana, after officers said they came to his house to question him and found baggies of marijuana in the freezer and on a living room table.

An Amherst woman told city police Monday that Weeks had pushed her down while she was at his apartment on Sunday, causing her to injure her shoulder, then he lunged at her with a knife and said he would kill her, stabbing the couch near her injured shoulder.
