According to Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol, on June 18, 2022, at about 12:50 AM deputies were called to the Rome Motel located at 8257 Turin Road in the City of Rome for an Assault Complaint. Upon arrival, deputies met with the male victim who had suffered a stab wound to his upper left arm. He was transported to Rome Memorial hospital for treatment. Both the male and female parties were uncooperative and fabricated a story of what had occurred. During the investigation and review of video footage, it was found that the parties were involved in a physical domestic in front of their two children.

The male party was uncooperative about giving any information of who caused him the stab wound and refused to press any charges against any party involved. During the investigation, it was concluded that the female party was the primary attacker. Diamond Phillips, 25, of Scranton, Pennsylvania was taken into custody and was transported back to the Law Enforcement Building for processing and lodge at the Oneida County Correctional Facility awaiting arraignment.

Phillips was charged with two counts of Endangering the Welfare of a Child, a Class A Misdemeanor.
