Norwalk man accused of stabbing girlfriend appears in court

A Norwalk man accused of attempted murder appeared before a judge today.

Police say 30-year-old Christian Vazquez stabbed his girlfriend multiple times after a domestic dispute at their home in Norwalk last night.

Officers say when they arrived at the home, they found Vazquez sitting against a wall, drunk and distraught, with a 2-month-old baby in his arms. They say he immediately confessed to the stabbing and was taken into custody and later charged with attempted murder.

Officials say the victim underwent surgery at Norwalk Hospital and is said to be in serious condition. Meanwhile, a restraining order has been placed against Vazquez.
