New Castle police reported that a West Side resident suffered slash wounds to the arm around 1 a.m. Saturday.

Ortarius S. Williams, 36, 212 Stewart Place, is facing one count each of aggravated assault, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and disorderly conduct.

Police were called to Jameson Hospital, where the victim told them Williams had gotten out of a car on Pollock Avenue where he was and stabbed him twice in the left arm.

A witness told police she had seen Williams get out of the car and that he and the victim were arguing. She said Williams pulled out a switchblade and stabbed the man twice, then got into the car and left.

Williams was arraigned by District Judge Melissa A. Amodie, who set his bond at $15,000.

Are you concerned enough about the Heartbleed bug on the Internet to change all of your social media and website passwords?

Yes. It’s always a good idea to change passwords regularly anyway. I just have so many, I’m not sure where to start.
No. From what I’ve read, companies are still trying to figure out how to fix the flaw. The bad guys will just have access to my NEW passwords, too.
Not sure, but I blame Al Gore. He invented the Internet, right? How’s he going to get us out of this mess?
