37-year-old Shawn Jakubowski is facing a charge for second-degree assault in connection with an incident that occurred inside of a vehicle early Monday morning. The criminal complaint says a female told Rochester police Jakubowski and her were arguing about his drug use while he was fidgeting with a pocket knife.

She told officers the argument escalated and Jakubowski made a stabbing motion towards her chest with the knife. She said Jakubowski threatened to stab her as he was swinging the knife at her. She then fled from the vehicle, unharmed by the alleged stabbing attempt, according to the complaint. 

Court records indicate Jakubowski was released without bail but with conditions. His next court appearance is scheduled for November 15.
