Parolee tried to stab pregnant woman


LE ROY – A paroled drug dealer under indictment for selling crack cocaine faces new charges after he allegedly tried to stab a pregnant woman in the stomach, village police said.

Randy J. Dumbleton Jr., 38, of Rochester faces numerous charges after an investigation into a domestic dispute July 22 at a Lake Street house.

Detective John Condidorio said the victim called 911 to a report that she had been stabbed. Police arrived and found that the woman had been stabbed twice in the arm with a “pointed weapon” and suffered a scrape to the stomach area.

Condidorio said the woman’s arm wounds came when she was trying to prevent Dumbleton from stabbing her stomach.

Dumbleton had fled the house before police arrived. He was found trying to hide in nearby woods and was taken into custody, though he did at first ignore requests by police to come out of the woods, Condidorio said.

Dumbleton was charged with attempted first-degree assault for allegedly trying to stab the woman numerous times in the stomach, second-degree assault, third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, all felonies, and misdemeanor obstruction of governmental administration.

Dumbleton was jailed without bail and was being referred to state parole for parole violations.

Dumbleton is on parole until 2023 after serving more than three years of a four-year term for dealing drugs in Genesee County in 2016.

He also was on parole at that time for a 2006 armed robbery conviction in Monroe County. He served seven years for that crime.

In June 2020, Dumbleton was arrested in Batavia and charged with dealing crack cocaine.

He was later indicted on charges of third-degree criminal sale and criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell and driving while impaired by drugs. He initially was jailed on a parole violation detainer but was later released.
