STONINGTON — A Pawcatuck man has been ordered held on $100,000 bond after the police said he stabbed his girlfriend multiple times in front of her children on Memorial Day.
The man, Kenny Sullivan, 44, of 26 Noyes Ave., Apt. 1, was arraigned Tuesday in New London Super Court on charges of first-degree assault, second-degree breach of peace and three counts of risk of injury to a minor. He did not enter a plea during his initial appearance, and court records show that the judged raised his bond from $75,000 to $100,000.
As of Thursday afternoon, Sullivan had not been able to post bond and was in custody at the Corrigan-Radgowski Correctional Center in Montville.
Stonington police were called to the Noyes Avenue home shortly after 3 p.m. Monday with reports of a stabbing. When officers arrived, they found Sullivan's live-in girlfriend on the floor with multiple stab wounds.
The woman was taken by ambulance to a hospital and remains in stable condition, the police said. She was expected to recover from her injuries.
Police said the investigation determined that three children were in the home and "were also witnesses to the stabbing." Their ages were not released.
According to a police report, officers spoke with the woman and learned that she and Sullivan had gotten into an argument after she said she learned that Sullivan was cheating on her. During the argument, the victim told police that Sullivan became enraged, stabbed her several times, and fled on foot.
Police began a search of the area and Sullivan was seen a short time later near the intersection of West Broad Street and Coggswell Street. With the assistance of the Westerly Police Department, whose officers aided in the downtown search, Sullivan was taken into custody.
Sullivan admitted to officers at the time of his arrest that he "just stabbed the victim," according to a police report.
