NEW BRITAIN - A woman is facing attempted murder and assault charges after she allegedly stabbed a victim during a domestic dispute Sunday evening.

Tianna Laboy, 19, was arrested and then brought to the hospital for evaluation.

Officers were called to a Pennsylvania Avenue address just after 7 p.m. and found the victim had been stabbed once in the upper chest and four times in the back, Police Capt. Thomas Steck said.

The victim and Laboy had gotten into a argument and the victim asked her to leave, the police report said. The two are in a domestic relationship. Police are withholding any information on the victim.

Laboy allegedly went downstairs after the victim asked her to leave, grabbed a kitchen knife, came back upstairs and stabbed the victim repeatedly.

The victim’s injuries are considered serious but not life-threatening, police said. Laboy was found walking in the area after police arrived. She was charged with attempted murder, first-degree assault, interfering with an emergency call and disorderly conduct. She was then taken to a hospital for evaluation.

Officials at New Britain Superior Court will arraign Laboy when she is released from the hospital, court staff said.
