Police: Long Island woman charged in stabbing at Fairfield rest area off I-95
A Long Island woman was charged in connection to a stabbing at a Fairfield rest area off I-95.
Kristin Allen, of Sound Beach, was charged with assault and breach of peace.
Police say Allen was involved in a stabbing incident that happened at the rest area off I-95 north on Dec. 26, around 10:30 p.m. near exit 22.
State police say the man was stabbed multiple times in the arm and leg after an apparent argument with Allen.
The man and Allen had been arguing inside the rest stop and were asked to leave by an employee, police say.
The two then went to their car and a witness who called 911 says a physical fight broke out, and the man was apparently stabbed several times.
State police say when troopers arrived on scene, they found the man bleeding with multiple stab wounds to his right arm and leg. A trooper applied two tourniquets to stop the bleeding. The man was taken to the hospital with injuries that are not life-threatening.
Police say Allen was found outside the rest area and arrested after the incident.
Police say Allen was unable to post a $100,000 bond and was transported to York Correction Facility and is scheduled to appear at Bridgeport Superior Court today.
