Hartford police officer stabbed in neck, suspect in custody

Hartford police officer Jill Kidik was identified as the victim of Thursday's stabbing

Police investigate the scene after a police officer was stabbed in the neck in Hartford, Conn., May 17, 2018.

The officer is in the ICU after undergoing several hours of surgery at Hartford Hospital.

According to Hartford Deputy Police Chief Brian Foley, the female officer was called to an apartment on Constitution Boulevard to help with an eviction notice. The officer was trying to handcuff the woman before she began to stab the officer. "They went in, and when they got in there, they saw the woman had the officer in a headlock and was stabbing her in the throat".

Foley also said "the accused has been charged with Attempted Murder".

Hartford Police have not identified the officer that was stabbed, other than to describe her as a well-respected, 12-year-veteran of the force trained in crisis intervention.

Foley says that the suspect is in custody and is also at the hospital for a minor hand injury.
