Spring Valley, NY- A man accused of stabbing a security guard to death in a New York library earlier this week also tried to rape a woman at a hospital last year.
On Tuesday afternoon, Sandra Wilson, 52, was killed at the Finkelstein Memorial Library. Wilson asked Glaudin Blanchard, 25, to turn down his music when he lunged at her, stabbing her with a large kitchen knife. Blanchard was help down by other patrons while waiting for police.
Wilson was taken to the hospital where she later died.
Blanchard was arrested and charged with murder in connection to her death.
Police say Glaudin was a regular at the library and knew the victim. The victim worked at the library for about 10 years.
Officials say that Blanchard attempted to rape a woman at a Nyack Hospital no November 9.
Blanchard entered the rape accuser’s room, help her by her throat and bit her neck. He then allegedly told her, “Shut up and do not scream. Pull down your pants. I do not care about your blood.” The woman managed to fight him off, and Nyack Hospital staff took him out of the facility. She suffered "visible physical injuries to the neck and throat," according to the complaint.
Blanchard was arrested and his bail was set at $100,000, but because of the new bail reform laws that were going into effect in the new year, he was released.
