BRIDGEPORT - A judge set bond at $750,000 for a Bronx man Monday accused of stabbing a Norwalk woman over the weekend.

The judge also issued an order of protection against Clifton Cole, who is facing several charges in connection to the Saturday morning incident.

Police say Cole stabbed the woman several times in an East Norwalk home. He was charged with first-degree assault, risk of injury to a child, carrying a dangerous weapon and interfering with a 911 call.

Police say there were children in the home where the incident happened. Those children are now with family members, according to police.

Although police did not say what Cole's relationship to the victim is, they say he specifically targeted her. "This is not a random act. This is an isolated event. There’s no further ongoing threat to the public," says Sgt. Sofia Gulino.

The victim is in stable condition at Norwalk Hospital.
