Man stabbed during road rage incident in Bolton

BOLTON — State police say a man is being charged with aggravated assault following a stabbing incident in Bolton last week.

On June 16, police responded to the area of Country Club Drive for what was initially reported as a road-rage incident that had started on Nashville Road in Jericho at around 9:50 p.m.

Upon arriving on the scene, police say they located William Mercer, of Bolton, who stated he was involved in an altercation with an unknown man, later identified as Travis McGrath, 38, also of Bolton.

Police say Mercer stabbed McGrath several times in the abdomen and torso.

McGrath was initially transported to the University of Vermont Medical Center in Burlington by a family member and later by Richmond Rescue for what was determined to be serious, life-threatening injuries.

McGrath remains hospitalized, and his condition is reported to be stable.

After consulting with the Chittenden County State’s Attorney’s Office, Mercer was issued a citation through his attorney yesterday night.

Mercer is scheduled to appear in court on June 28 for the charges of aggravated assault, aggravated disorderly conduct, and negligent operation.
