Police: Suspect in Norwalk stabbing turns himself in
After two months on the run, a suspect in a stabbing outside a popular bar turned himself in to Norwalk police Monday morning.
Norwalk police say Mykell Mitchell walked into police headquarters and voluntarily turned himself in.
Mitchell is accused of stabbing a waiter on Oct. 30, outside the Harlan Publick bar on Washington Street in South Norwalk.
Court papers say Mitchell once worked at the popular bar but was fired for starting a fight.
Police say Mitchell stabbed the victim over a bartender Mitchell was dating at the time. They say that bartender had a protective order against him.
Police also say Mitchell had two arrest warrants from Stamford.
Mitchell is currently in jail under $20,000 bond and facing first-degree assault charges.
