A city veteran was badly injured on Thursday morning when she was stabbed in the ministry's service, police said.
The stabbing happened at 10 o'clock in one of the upper floors of Spectra Boutique Apartments, 5 Constitution Plaza During a forced eviction, a female officer tried to handcuff a woman, said deputy head Brian Foley.
He said a 39-year-old woman was in police custody. She was taken to the hospital to be treated for hand injuries.
"As far as the state is concerned, everything we have is critical," said Foley. "Serious, life-altering injury, to say the least." She was stabbed in a carotid artery.
He asked the residents to capture the officer in their thoughts and prayers.
Foley said maintenance workers "heard a fight in the other room." They saw her stab her in the neck. "
The workers saw the woman holding the officer. "In the moments after the stab wound, the police reportedly closed roads in the Hartford Hospital area."
Police officer being trained in crisis intervention, Foley said
"She's a veteran, crisis ink For this kind of situation, training was being prepared."
The Spectra Apartments opened in 2015 following a remodeling of the long-standing Sonesta Hotels worth $ 24 million. The project, which was partly funded by public funds, added 190 apartments to the city center, part of a push to add rents to the center of the city. The apartments are almost fully occupied, according to the latest figures from the Capital Region Development Authority.
