SPRINGFIELD (WGGB) – A Springfield man’s nightly walk on Main Street turns into a fight for his life when he is suddenly attacked by his ex-wife.
Springfield Police say 31-year-old Doris Quinones already has a restraining order against her on behalf of the victim. They say she was the passenger in a grey sedan which pulled up alongside the victim back in April when he was walking through a railroad underpass on Main Street at 9:30pm.
“A car pulled up and the victim’s two teenage sons were inside.” Sgt. John Delaney says. “Ms. Quinones was in the passenger seat.”
Following a brief, friendly exchange with his sons, they got back in the car and drove away. Police say minutes later, the same car came around the corner and pulled up alongside the victim again. This time, Quinones got out of the vehicle and the sons weren’t present. She demanded to ‘talk’ to the victim. He refused, saying he’d see her at their next court date.
“The next thing the victim felt was a knife stabbing him in the neck. It went into the side of his neck and was a pretty deep wound. He thought he was going to die.” Sgt. Delaney says.
Fighting off Quinones, police say the victim was able to stagger up Main Street and eventually make his way over to the Springfield Police Department. He collapsed in the lobby and was taken to Baystate Medical Center for his injuries.
Police say Doris Quinones has two addresses, one in Springfield the other in Westfield. They believe she is still in the area.
Quinones is wanted on several charges including assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and attempted murder.
