Stabbing Incident Strikes Massage Spa In Wappingers Falls

Authorities are still looking for answers regarding a scary incident on Saturday April 6th in a relatively busy area of Wappingers Falls. With the number of new businesses that opened here over the past few years, in addition to the usual traffic due to Hannaford, there's always a lot of activity at the plaza located at1490 US-9 in Wappingers Falls.

For those that enter the plaza from the Myers Corners Road entrance, you are likely familiar with the smaller strip plaza that sits adjacent to the Hannaford supermarket, and not far from the Wappingers DMV.


The storefront on the left end of the plaza called Physical Wellness Spa, was said to be the scene of a violent incident over the weekend.

The supect was later identified as Yosef Ziegler.
