An Auburn man has been arrested for stabbing a 35-year-old man several times in the town of Victory, the Cayuga County Sheriff's Office said.

According to a press release, at around 11:30 p.m. Sunday, deputies responded to a stabbing at 458 Victory Road. Upon arrival, deputies found Joshua Hoeffner had been stabbed multiple times in the head, hand and torso. 

Hoeffner was transported to Upstate University Hospital and subsequently transferred to Crouse Hospital with serious injuries. Crouse Hospital would not provide an update on Hoeffner's condition Monday. 

Meanwhile, deputies arrested 28-year-old Nathan Fillingham, of 88 Capital St., Auburn. He was charged with first-degree assault and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

Detective Sgt. Fred Cornelius said Hoeffner and Fillingham were "known to each other," but would not discuss the motivation behind the stabbing. Cornelius said Hoeffner was from the area where the stabbing took place. 

Fillingham was arraigned in Victory Town Court and remanded to Cayuga County Jail in lieu of $10,000 cash or $20,000 bond.
