The following police reports come from the Middletown Police public information officer. Individuals named here reflect charges filed, never a conviction.

A couple's verbal sparring on New Year's Eve quickly devolved into a physical confrontation which sent a 35-year-old man to the hospital with a stab wound to his back, according to Middletown Police.

On Dec. 31 at 1:19 a.m., police were called to an apartment building on Highland Avenue by Andrea M. Bomani, 30, who said she had stabbed her live-in boyfriend, William R. Morehead, 35, of East Main Street, in the back with a pair of scissors after they argued, according to the report. 

Bomani, who spoke to officers in her mother's apartment, said Morehead left in a Toyota Tercel and she had been drinking earlier. She admitted to stabbing him after he followed her with a knife, according to the report. 

While being treated at Middlesex Hospital for three small puncture wounds that required stitches, the report says, Morehead admitted the two "put their hands on each other," according to the report, he lost his temper, "got into her face," and yelled at her, and acknowledged that he frightened Bomani.

Both were charged with disorderly conduct and Bomani additionally for second-degree assault. She was released on a promise to appear in Middletown Superior Court on Jan. 13 and Morehead on Feb. 7.

In 2010, Bomani was found guilty of third-degree assault and violation of probation for that charge in 2011. In January 2010, she was involved in another incident in which her sister stabbed her male roommate in the arm, according to the Middletown Press.

Jesus, you can stab someone in the back and get released on a PTA? I had a $25,000 bond for 3 grams of weed! Who knew I'd be in LESS trouble if I had harmed someone?!?!?

@ Ian... It's all about who the court thinks has deeper pockets, unless you do something insane. I've known of case where the couple has been on welfare and the court appointed lawyers and waved all legal fees for them to get divorced. Usually the lawyers are the ones that make out best.
