NEW BALTIMORE — The suspect in a Sept. 25 stabbing in the parking lot of C.A. Albright & Sons in New Baltimore was arrested Tuesday by federal marshals after eluding police for more than a week.

Deven B. Hotaling, 22, of Philmont, was taken into custody on an arrest warrant Tuesday morning by U.S. Marshals on Clinton Avenue in Albany, said Steven Nevel, public information officer for State Police Troop F.

Hotaling was turned over to State Police in Catskill where he was charged with first-degree assault, a class B felony, in connection with a stabbing last month in New Baltimore.

Hotaling was arraigned in Coxsackie town court and was taken to the Greene County Jail, where he was held without bail.

The victim of the reported stabbing, a 30-year-old man who police have not identified, underwent treatment at Albany Medical Center. He was stabbed several times in the side and back, Nevel said.

Hotaling and the victim were involved in a fight Sept. 25 that ended in a stabbing, Nevel said.

The warrant for Hotaling was issued after he was identified by police as the stabbing suspect, Nevel said.

Hotaling was also wanted by authorities in Columbia County for failing to appear for court dates to answer charges in two felony cases from 2020, said Aaron Hicks, public information officer for State Police Troop K.

Arrest warrants were also issued this week by the Philmont Village Court after Hotaling failed to appear for two cases in which he was charged in 2020, Hicks said.

On May 21, Hotaling was charged by state police with fourth-degree grand larceny and third-degree robbery, both felonies. Hotaling was arrested and suspected of forcibly robbing a Lyft driver of $1,700 in cash. The incident was reported Feb. 27.

On Aug. 18, Hotaling was charged by state police with second-degree arson. Hotaling is accused of setting a fire at an occupied residence on Church Street. The fire was put out quickly by firefighters and there were no injuries.

Both cases are pending in court, according to the Columbia County District Attorney’s Office.
