A man from Watervliet with a lengthy criminal history is facing new charges after an arrest last week.

Brad Bova tried to stab two people in a home on 4th Avenue, Saturday night. They say he then barricaded himself inside the home before police were able to get in and arrest him.

Bova was sent to the Albany County Jail.

Bova spent time in prison after a drug-related conviction from 2000. He served another year after another drug conviction in 2007. Another drug conviction in 2011 sent Bova to prison for more than three years. He later violated parole and served more time. An attempted burglary charge in 2017 landed him behind bars for another year and a half.
