Waterbury Man Stabbed During Drug Deal

Naugatuck 16-year-old arrested after fight that leaves a 20-year-old hospitalized.


A 19-year-old Waterbury man was hospitalized after police say he was stabbed and seriously injured by a Naugatuck teen during a drug deal in the borough Tuesday.

The 16-year-old was selling marijuana out of his home on Golden Hill Street when the Waterbury man approached intending to buy some pot, police said. The man took a small amount and attempted to run away without paying for it, police said. 

The teen chased the man out of the house, the two engaged in a brief fistfight, and then the teen stabbed the man with a three-inch pocketknife in the abdomen, police said.

The man sustained internal bleeding and underwent surgery at Waterbury Hospital, where he is expected to recover, police said.

The teen, whose name was not released because of his age, was charged with second-degree assault, first-degree reckless endangerment and sale of marijuana.

This is Connecticut- Since its probably his first arrest, there will be a plea deal and probably accelerated rehabilitation. The teen will probably spend no more than 2 to 3 years in jail, at most. Even though he actively sold narcotics and almost stabbed someone to death. And he is only 16 y/o; what a great start. A psychopath in the making. Pity the state did away with the death penalty. This POS will eventually pass on his DNA and create more POS to prey on society. Thanks Connecticut legislators.

It's trash like that like that that this town does not need. Hey .. when you commit such a crime as this you should lose your right to not being expose . I should know who you are by name regardless of your age .

You are so right Silent Wolf!! When you commit a crime against humanity like that you should lose the right to hide behind your age!

This happened near Prospect St school too. That is not okay. This needs to be taken very seriously.

This is what the black market creates. We need regulation, not prohibition!

exactly right bill! Stop letting the black markets (not to mention the police) proft from letting drugs be illegal. Make them legal, and tax the $hit out of them. Enough of this babysitting/money grubbing government/police force. Let the police focus on real crimes against humanity, not victimless crimes like drug use.
