A Hamden man is facing assault charges after he allegedly stabbed another man during an argument Tuesday.
Hamden Police got a report of a stabbing at a North Street home at about 3:45 p.m. Tuesday, according to police spokesman Capt. Ronald Smith. It was reported that the suspect was trying to flee the scene, he said.
When he got to the home, Sgt. Michael Doherty found Paul Ferraro, 50, of 75 North St., Hamden, parked in his car near the house.
"Investigation revealed that Ferraro and the 22 year-old victim, who both reside at the North Street address, were engaged in a verbal dispute," Smith said in a release Wednesday. "As the 22 year-old walked away, Ferraro followed him. When he turned towards Ferraro, he was stabbed in the arm."
The victim was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital for treatment of what was described as non-life threatening injuries, Smith said.
Ferraro was charged with first-degree assault and disorderly conduct, Smith said. He was held in lieu of $100,000.00 bond and was arraigned Wednesday in Meriden Superior Court.
