Early-Morning Stabbing in Springfield Sends One Victim to Hospital

VERGE STABBING

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — One person was rushed to the hospital after they say a domestic dispute led to a stabbing in Springfield.

Police and ambulance crews responded to 131 Verge Street, near the intersection with Boston Road, shortly around 5:20 a.m. Friday.

Springfield Police Sgt. John Delaney explains that once officers got into the home, they reportedly found that “the dwelling was in disarray” and broken glass and furniture was seen.

One of the teenagers inside the home reportedly told investigators that he was awoken by his stepfather allegedly hitting him with a broom and telling him to clean his room.

“The stepfather also threw ‘Kool Aid’ at the boy and told him to clean it up,” Delaney says, adding that the mother of the boy intervened and the “domestic fight continued in another part of the home.”

Officers searched the home and found a 26-year-old man suffering from a stab wound to the chest. He was taken to Baystate Medical Center, where he is in serious, but stable, condition.

Delaney says that officers arrested 33-year-old Serina Wainscott of Springfield and charged her with assault and batter by means of a dangerous weapon, and attempted murder.

Arraignment for Wainscott is scheduled for Friday in Springfield District Court.
