Stamford Man Stabbed in Chest During Altercation

A Stamford man was treated at the hospital and released, but also charged in the incident.

Two men were arrested Sunday night after one stabbed the other in the chest, police said Monday.

Jose Contreras, 42, of 69 Henry Street, and Desiedero Sandoval-Garcia, 42, of 144 Henry Street, were involved in some sort of altercation out front of the steps of a mobile home, though police had few details about what had occurred or why the arrests were made. 

According to the police activity log, a call of assault with a weapon originated from Sandoval-Garcia's home at 144 Henry St., though officers said the call actually took place at 695 Pacific St. During officers responding to that call, Contreras was arrested and charged with first-degree assault and carrying a dangerous weapon. He was identified as Sandoval-Garcia as the person who stabbed him, according to police.

According to the police activity log, at a second call originating from 207 Henry St. for reports of child neglect, Sandoval-Garcia was arrested and charged with third-degree assault. He had a stab-wound in his chest at the time and was taken to the hospital and released Monday morning.

Sandoval-Garcia had apparently posted bond as he was in the police station Monday morning bandaged up and looking to retrieve his wallet from police possession.
