Man stabs two of his neighbors in Middletown

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (WTNH)  –  A Middletown man has been arrested after he stabbed two of his neighbors on Easter Sunday.

Middletown Police have charged 62-year-old Kevin Gerard Foster with assault 1st.

Police say they were called to 500 Washington Street, unit 32, just after 3:30 p.m. on the report of two people stabbed and were made aware that the suspect was in unit 29.  Officers found a female and male with stab wounds to their stomachs and the male victim also had a stab wound to the upper left chest.

Both victims told police they were stabbed by their next door neighbor.   Police then found Foster in unit 29 holding a knife which he dropped without incident.  He also made unsolicited comments implicating himself in the crime.

Witnesses told police that Foster and the male victim had been arguing over allegations that Foster was looking into the windows of the female victim at unit 32.  Foster then left and the victims went outside to use the phone and then returned inside, at which time they were stabbed by Foster.

Foster told police that the male victim kicked him so he stabbed him and then the female came at him with a hammer type instrument and he was able to block her from striking him but then he stabbed her too.
