(Long Island, NY) A Freeport man was arrested after stabbing his girlfriend with a steak knife after an arguement on Sunday afternoon and charged with attempted murder, according to the Nassau County Police Department.
Rolando Dubon, 31, a resident of 112 Front Street in Freeport, had been involved in a fight with his 34 year-old girlfriend in his home at approximately 12 p.m. when the incident turned violent, cops said.
Dubon stabbed his girlfriend, whose name is currently being withheld, in the chest with a steak knife. Unaware of her wound, she fled the scene in a taxi to her mother’s Roosevelt home, realizing upon arrival that she had been stabbed by Dubon. From there, she was rushed to a local area hospital where she was treated for a punctured diaphragm and a punctured colon, undergoing emergency surgery, according to police.
Her current condition is not known, nor is the reason for the argument.
Dubon was tracked down and arrested by police in Brentwood on Sunday afternoon. Police said that he went into custody without incident.
Dubon was arraigned Monday morning on a charge of second-degree attempted murder. He remains in custody and is being held on $250,000 cash bail or $500,000 bond. He is due back in court on May 30.
