Police responded to a domestic disturbance early Monday morning to find a victim that had suffered a stab wound to the chest.
The 48-year-old male victim's ex-girlfriend allegedly showed up at his Central Street apartment about 1 a.m. and accused him of cheating on her, according to Springfield Police Sgt. John Delaney.
There was a female witness inside of the apartment with the victim when the alleged stabbing occurred, Delaney said.
The verbal argument turned violent when the suspect, identified as 31-year-old Latrisa M. Pace, residing without an address, allegedly stabbed the man, Delaney said.
Pace was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, intimidation of a witness, and assault by means of a dangerous weapon. She will be arraigned Monday in Springfield District Court, Delaney said.
The victim was in good condition at Baystate Medical Center, Delaney said.
