A 27-year-old New Britain man accused of stabbing his aunt has been arrested on an attempted murder charge.
Police located Eddy Feliz-Ayala, 27, of 637 Osgood Ave., New Britain, at a Beaver Street home Sunday and arrested him on a warrant after finding his aunt with apparent stab wounds at 42 Erwin Place 1st North a couple days before. Police responded to that address after receiving a 911 call at 10:51 p.m. on Friday.
Feliz-Ayala's aunt was taken to a nearby trauma center. She is still recovering there and is listed in critical but stable condition, police said.
Police charged Feliz-Ayala with attempted murder and first-degree assault and held him in custody in lieu of a $500,000 bond. He was cooperative with police when he was taken into custody. It's unclear what triggered the attack.
He was scheduled to appear in New Britain Superior Court on Monday to be arraigned.
Police ask anyone with information on the incident to call Det. Karl Mordasiewicz at 860-826-314 or the community tip line at 860-826-3199 or submit a tip online at newbritainpolice.org.
