Woman Charged With Stabbing Mom

She took off after the incident but turned herself into police a short time later, according to reports.


A Hamden woman turned herself into police today after she allegedly stabbed her mother early this morning.

LaQuana McNatt, 26, of 442 Shelton Ave., Hamden, is facing charges of first-degree assault, first-degree reckless endangerment and risk of injury to a minor, according to Hamden Police Lt. Timothy Wydra.

At about 2:30 a.m. Wednesday morning police responded to the second floor of 442 Shelton Ave. on the report of a domestic incident, Wydra said, and found Angelina McNatt suffering from stab wounds to her shoulder, left elbow and left wrist.

She was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital, where she was treated and released, Wydra said. 

Laquana McNatt had fled the scene before police got there, Wydra said, and a police dog wasn't able to find her, but she turned herself into police later in the morning. She was held in lieu of $10,000 bond and is due to appear in Meriden Superior Court on Sept. 26.
