OSSINING — An Ecuadorian man accused of repeatedly stabbing his village housemate Monday is wanted by federal authorities for sneaking into the United States after being deported, police said. Ubaleino Quezada, 30, of 26 William St., was charged with second-degree assault, a felony, after he used two kitchen knives to stab the 52-year-old victim in the chest and arm and slash his face and back, Ossining Detective Lt. William Sullivan said. The victim, whose wounds were not life-threatening, was taken to the Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla following the 3:30 p.m. incident in their home. Quezada is being held without bail, pending a hearing in Village Court on Tuesday. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has placed a detainer on him; he has also been charged as a fugitive from justice. The stabbing was the village's fifth of the month. Four men have been arrested for the unrelated crimes, Sullivan said.
