Woman Accused of Stabbing Boyfriend in New Britain

New Britain police have arrested a woman who is accused of stabbing her boyfriend over a breakup.

Police said they responded to Kelsey Street just before 1:30 a.m. on June 27 to investigate a stabbing and found a 35-year-old man with serious injuries. He was transported to a Hartford area trauma hospital for treatment.

The victim told police that his ex-girlfriend, 22-year-old Latisha Tashana Lewis, of West Hartford, was upset about their recent break-up and stabbed him, police said.

Police obtained an arrest warrant for Lewis and located her later that same day in Newington, where she was arrested. She was then transported back to New Britain and charged with assault in the first degree and breach of peace.

Police said the victim’s injuries were not life-threatening.
