Man Stabbed While Strangling Companion in Presence of Four Children: Police

Four children were in a Woodmont Road motel room when a man was stabbed while strangling a companion early Monday morning, police said.

Milford police responded at about 12:43 a.m. to a domestic disturbance at the motel room of Matthew Andrews, 33, who lives there at 219 Woodmont Road, room 118.

As he was strangling his "companion" in his home, another person in the room cut his leg with a knife, injuring him, police said. Four children were present at the time of the altercation and it's unknown whether anyone else was in the room, but police declined to comment on whether the kids were involved.

Andrews was treated for a minor knife wound and released.

Milford police charged him with third-degree strangulation, third-degree assault, disorderly conduct and four counts of risk of injury. Officers also charged him with violating a court-issued protective order due to the incident.

Police held him on a $100,000 bond and he is scheduled to be arraigned in Milford Superior Court on Monday.
