POLICE

Luke Kilburn, age 18, of Ballston Spa, was charged May 31 with felony assault, and criminal possession of a weapon – a misdemeanor, in connection with an alleged incident that took place on May 25 on Woodlawn Avenue, near the parking garage. According to police, officers were called to the location regarding a fight that involved 15 to 20 people. The fight had dispersed prior to officers’ arrival; however, authorities were notified of an 18-year-old man that had just presented to Saratoga Hospital with a stab wound to his abdomen.
