Officers of the Connecticut Police Department have charged a woman for stabbing her boyfriend after he allegedly stared at nude photos of her teenage daughter, according to a report.
Trysh Brown, was arraigned Monday, August 31 on a first-degree assault charge in Bridgeport, where police heading to a Park Street residence early Saturday morning in response to calls of a man screaming for help while covered in blood.
Connecticut Post reports that the responding cops found the man sitting on a sidewalk with multiple stab wounds. He was then taken to Bridgeport Hospital.
Officers who went to the man’s home were greeted by Brown, 32, who was also covered in blood. The protective mother claimed she awoke and found her boyfriend looking at naked photos of her daughter on his cellphone, setting off a confrontation between the pair, police said.
Brown said her boyfriend became violent and proceeded to hit her in the face severally when she asked him about the photos.
In self-defence, she then started stabbing him with two kitchen knives, telling police she did so because “he is a big man,” according to the report.
Kevin Dunn, Senior Assistant State’s Attorney 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 critical 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.
A court set bail bond for Brown at $75,000.
She’s due to appear in court on Oct. 1.
