    A Bridgeport woman is facing charges after allegedly showing up at her boyfriend’s home and stabbing him the chest, police said.

    According to police, 25-year-old Evelyn Smith, of Hancock Avenue, went to her boyfriend’s house on Ortega Avenue around 7 a.m. Wednesday and stabbed him with what may have been a kitchen knife when he answered the door.

    Police said Smith then tried to get into the house and go upstairs to speak with one of her boyfriend’s relatives. He blocked her entry so she turned and fled, banging her fists against cars in the driveway on her way out, authorities said.

    Smith was taken into custody and found with three kitchen knives in her coat pocket, according to police.

    The victim, Smith’s 26-year-old boyfriend, was taken to Saint Vincent’s Medical Center for treatment of non-life threatening injuries, police said.

    Smith was charged with second-degree assault.
