At approximately 9:22 p.m. Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a 911 report a

domestic dispute at the Buena Vista Motel located on State Highway 28 in

the Town of Delhi that was called in by the female victim.


The victim reported that she had escaped from her motel room where her

boyfriend had held her captive and beat her before she was able to escape

from the room to call 911. The victim further reported that as Deputies were

responding to her 911 call the assailant chased her down and again began to

punch and kick her before dragging her back into the motel room where he

brutally beat her with a glass bottle causing her to suffer serious physical

injury including multiple lacerations to the face and legs and the loss of

several teeth.

Upon arrival at the scene Deputies arrested the assailant who was identified

as 38 year old Jamal S. Abrams who formerly resided in Herkimer and

Brooklyn, NY.

The victim was transported to O’Connor Hospital by Delhi Emergency

Squad and was subsequently transferred to U.H.S. Wilson Hospital in

Johnson City for further treatment.


Following an investigation by Deputies Abrams was charged with a number

of felony offenses including attempted murder in the second degree, assault

in the first degree and unlawful imprisonment in the first degree as well as

the class A misdemeanor offense of criminal possession of a weapon in the

fourth degree. The defendant was later arraigned in front of Judge Gumo at

Delhi Town Court and was remanded to the Delaware County Jail in lieu of

$100,000 cash bail or $200,000 bail bond. Two active Bench Warrants for

Abrams’ arrest that are held by the Herkimer Police Department were also

filed with the Delaware County Correctional Facility as detainers.

Deputies were assisted by members of the New York State Police and the

Delhi Police Department.
