A Connecticut woman is facing charges for stabbing her boyfriend after he looked at photos of her young daughter, according to a report. Trysh Brown, 31, was arraigned Monday on a charge, where officer were sent to a Park Street residence at about 4 a.m.
Saturday after getting calls about a man screaming for help while covered in vital fluid, the Connecticut Post reports.
Responding cops found the man sitting on a sidewalk with multiple stab wounds. He was taken to Bridgeport Hospital, officer said. Officers who went to the man’s home were met by Brown, who was also covered in vital fluid.
She claimed she awoke and found her boyfriend looking at photos of her daughter on his cellphone, setting off a confrontation between the pair, officer said.
Brown then started stabbing her boyfriend with two kitchen knives, telling officer she did so because “he is a big man,” according to the report. Senior Assistant State’s Attorney Kevin Dunn initially sought a high bond for Brown during her arraignment Monday, the newspaper reports.
“She stabbed him eight to 10 times and he is in bad condition,” Dunn said Monday. But Brown’s claim that she acted in self-defense was being investigated after new information was obtained in the case, Dunn said. Messages seeking additional comment from Dunn and Bridgeport officer were not immediately returned early Tuesday. A judge set bond for Brown at $75,000. She’s due back in court on Oct. 1, the Connecticut Post reports.
