On Monday around 7:32 p.m., authorities said they received a call about a woman stumbling in a parking lot on Colony Street in Meriden. Responding officers said they found a woman with multiple stab wounds and administered medical aid.
According to authorities, the woman was able to identify her attacker as 32-year-old Dennis Sanders, who police said she was in a relationship with.
The woman was transported to Mid-State Medical Center, but was later flown by LifeStar to Hartford Hospital due to the severity of her injuries.
