Man Accused of Stabbing Friend

A 25-year-old Pennsylvania man has been arrested, accused of stabbing his friend in Hamden.

Hamden Police responded to a home on Fourth Street around 8:14 p.m. on Monday and found
Geoffrey Golding, 24, suffering from stab wounds to the abdomen and arm.

Golding was treated, then transported to Yale-New Haven Hospital with serious injuries.

Police investigated and said Golding’s friend, Kevin Jackson, was staying at Golden’s home and knocked over and over again on the bedroom door.

When Golding answered the door, Johnson stabbed him several times, police said.

Golding‘s girlfriend and two small children were there at the time, locked themselves in the bedroom and called police, police said.

Jackson ran from the home and New Haven police arrested him for attempting to steal a machete from Walmart, police said.

He was then turned over to the custody of Hamden Police and charged with first-degree assault and two counts of risk of injury to a minor.

Jackson, who was detained on a $500,000 bond is scheduled to appear in court in Meriden on February 25.
