Arrest made in Hartford apartment stabbing

HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — An arrest has been made in an early morning stabbing that seriously injured a man in Hartford.

Police say just before 1 a.m., officers were called to the Regency Towers apartments at 34 Willard Street. That’s where they found a man suffering from a stab wound to the chest and two superficial wounds in the second floor common hallway of the building.

The victim sustained serious injuries and was transported to St. Francis Hospital, where he is listed in critical condition.

Officers were on-scene until around 5 a.m., and during the course of the investigation, a suspect was developed.

Police later arrested 42-year-old Vincent Poteat, of that same apartment building, and charged him with assault.  The incident remains under investigation.
