Volunteer stabbed at feed the needy event

NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut man has been charged with attempted murder in the stabbing of a fellow volunteer at a charity event where they were feeding needy people.

New Britain police say they arrested 56-year-old city resident Darryl Cousin on Saturday afternoon after he stabbed the victim multiple times while volunteering for the local group Isaiah 58 Outreach.

The victim’s name and condition haven’t been released.

Police say Cousin and the victim know each other and got into an argument. Officials say the victim brandished mace before being stabbed. It’s not clear what the argument was about.

Isaiah 58 Outreach’s founder, Linda Labbe, helped the victim, while police say someone chased down Cousin.

Cousin is being held on $750,000 bail pending arraignment Monday. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.
