Man Rushed to Hospital After New London Assault

One man was seriously injured in an assault on Blackhall Street and Prest Street in New London Monday.

New London Police Chief Peter Reichard confirmed the call came in around 2 p.m. and was reported as a stabbing, though the specifics remain under investigation.

The victim, identified as a man in his 20s, had a wound to the neck from some kind of edged weapon. The victim was taken to Lawrence + Memorial Hospital for treatment. Police said the injuries were serious but do not appear life-threatening.

Police said it appears the incident started as a verbal argument between the victim and suspect, and escalated.

The suspect, identified as 25-year-old Isaiah Boney, was arrested and charged with first-degree assault.

Investigators believe Boney and the victim knew each other.

The case remains under investigation.
