On August 24, 2014 at approximately 7:43 PM the Plattsburgh Police Department received a 911 call
reporting a male being stabbed behind 1 Pine Street Plattsburgh NY. Plattsburgh Police responded with
Emergency Medical Personnel and found one male with a stab wound to his chest. The Victim, Richard
“Dickey” J. Bombard (DOB 09/26/64) of Plattsburgh NY was transported to CVPH Emergency

It’s alleged that Bombard was at a friend’s house in the backyard. During the course of the evening a
neighbor, Otis L. Grenton Jr. (DOB 03/08/65) 9 Broad Street Apt. 202, Plattsburgh NY came
over. Bombard and Grenton apparently got into an argument. Grenton left the backyard and returned a
short time later. Bombard and Grenton continued arguing and then a physical altercation started between
them. That’s when Grenton allegedly swung a kitchen steak knife at Bombard striking him in the chest.

Grenton fled the scene heading west on Broad Street. Grenton was located shortly after the incident and
taken into custody. Plattsburgh Police secured the area and closed off Broad Street from the intersection of
Durkee Street to Margaret Street to investigate the crime with Clinton County District Attorney Andrew
Wylie and his office.

Added Note:

The Plattsburgh Police Department investigated a series of residential burglaries and vehicle break-ins
earlier this summer. Since August 1st, they have begun cropping up again. Neighborhoods in the north
and west ends of the city are the areas primarily affected. Specifically, neighborhoods near Cumberland,
Sailly and Bailey Avenues in the north end and Prospect, Leonard and Cornelia Street in the west end.
Entry is being made to homes in the evening and daybreak hours through unlocked doors, screened
windows and garages. Property stolen includes cash, loose change, purses, wallets, jewelry and
prescription medication.
 
We have no evidence at this point connecting BOYEA and DAVENPORT to the other burglaries we
have been investigating. In light of this we are asking everyone to continue to keep their doors and
windows secure and to report ANY suspicious activity or suspicious persons. Please be vigilant in your
neighborhoods; note and report anyone out of the ordinary walking through back yards or hedgerows,
especially in the evening and daybreak hours. Keep valuables such as purses and wallets out of sight
and in secure locations. Look out for out of town friends and neighbors by periodically checking their
home and ensuring newspapers, mail and packages are not left out. Report any strange noises and
unexplained activation of security lights. Dog owners should report barking or anything perceived to be
out of the ordinary. PLEASE report any occurrences of suspicious activity immediately to the police at
518-563-3411 or 911.
