Details Still Murky in Thursday Stabbing

Police continue to investigate the circumstances that left a woman, still unidentified, with a stab wound to her hand.

A judge has ordered a Southington teenager held in lieu of a $75,000 cash bond in connection with a Thursday robbery that left a 21-year-old woman injured with a stab wound to the hand, but details of the case have still not been revealed.

Sgt. Lowell DePalma of the said detectives are near completing their investigation but are still looking into certain details regarding the case.

“They are trying to make sure they have all the facts complete before closing their investigation,” DePalma said. “Once the investigation is complete, we will release more information including the name of the victim.”

Officers arrested Javier Arroyo, of 125 Howard Ave. in Southington, Thursday on charges including two counts of first-degree robbery, second-degree assault, second-degree breach of peace, interfering with an officer, two counts of reckless endangerment, sixth-degree larceny and second-degree threatening.

Arroyo, 19, was arraigned Friday in Bristol Superior Court, according to court records. He is currently incarcerated at the Hartford Correctional Center, according to online documents from the state Department of Correction.

Last week, police said Arroyo stabbed the 21-year-old Bristol resident in the hand after she had picked him up along Beecher Street and took an envelope with cash in it before fleeing. The victim was taken to the Hospital of Central Connecticut’s Bradley Campus and later released.

A 26-year-old Plainville woman who was also in the car at the time was not injured in the incident, police said.
