Fairfield police: Man attacked with ice pick

By March 03, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Police said someone tried to stab a man Sunday with an ice pick but missed.

Sgt. Jeff Osgood said there apparently was an altercation between two people near a shopping center on the 2100 block of Cadenasso Drive and one man tried to stab the other with an ice pick.

The suspect was described as a Hispanic male with small build, Osgood said.

When police responded, they saw a man matching the description flee toward the Ledgewood Creek area before officers could set up a perimeter, Osgood said. The suspect, possibly a transient, got away, Osgood said.

The victim had no injuries.

    Was the victim white Adrienne? I've been attacked twice by blacks----once by a black neighbor who was drunk and once by a black on the highway after he saw me video recording in public his illegal garbage dumping in a public area. This community seems to have a very perverse theme of ''die old Whitey, die''. And State and local government are the promoters and enablers of such conduct!
