A good Samaritan brought two women to the hospital after a domestic violence stabbing over the weekend, according to Bridgeport police.
On Wednesday, Lt. Stacey Lyons gave an update on the incident, calling it “horrific.”
“It appears that a young woman went out for her birthday with one of her friends and the friend’s boyfriend,” Lyons said.
She told News 12 that the three of them were at Forty 2 Hookah Lounge on Knowlton Street when some kind of argument occurred. It then continued outside as they left the business early Sunday morning, which is when the boyfriend got violent, Lyons stated.
“The gentleman by the name of Keenan Corley became irate, pulled out a pocketknife and slashed both women in the neck,” said Lyons.
Corley immediately took off and left the women, one of whom started walking to get help.
“A good Samaritan driving by found one of the women, brought her to Bridgeport Hospital, who then called the Bridgeport Police Department,” Lyons told News 12. “As that good Samaritan left Bridgeport Hospital to head home, he did locate the second victim as well. He had to carry her into his car and carry her into the hospital.”
The man described that woman as lifeless when he found her, according to Lyons. She said that both victims appear to be stable and will hopefully survive.
Police arrested Corley on Sunday, charging him with two counts of attempted murder and two counts of assault.
News 12 Connecticut’s Frank Recchia sat down with Corley back in March to talk about his book "I Love You and I'm Sorry: The High Cost of Loss." At the time, Corley said his mother inspired him to turn his life around, and he offered a message to the public to close out Women's History Month.
“Without women, nothing would be even possible. So, you know, love your mother or your sister, love your girlfriend and your wives, and really cherish them,” Corley told Recchia in the interview.
Corley was arraigned in Bridgeport Superior Court on Monday and is being held on a $1.5 million bond.
