Police in Fairfield are investigating a stabbing that has sent two people – including one juvenile – to the hospital. The mother of the child is reportedly the stabbing suspect.
The stabbing happened near Scott Street and Matthew Drive just after 5 p.m., Fairfield Police say.
At the scene, officers found that two people had been stabbed after some sort of domestic incident. Both stabbing victims have been taken to the hospital for treatment.
A neighbor, who didn’t want to be identified, says he saw the fight between the woman and her husband take a turn for the worst.
“They were just arguing and she stabbed him,” he said. “She stabbed the kid, too. The husband tried to get off the ground and start running.”
Other neighbors say that the juvenile stabbed is an 8-year-old boy.
“He was lying on the ground, not moving. A girl was laying next to him saying, ‘Help us, help us,'” said neighbor Danielle Rhodes.
It’s not the first time residents of Scott Street say they’ve seen flashing lights from Fairfield Police.
“It’s always arguing over here, the police are here all the time,” Rhodes said.
But they never expected two people to be stabbed including a child.
“I hope the little boy is okay. He wasn’t … he wasn’t breathing,” Rhodes said.
Police note that the investigation into the incident is ongoing.
