(Bridgeport, CT – Aug. 12, 2013) – A 38-year-old city man faces an attempted murder charge after stabbing an acquaintance and the acquaintance’s wife during an argument Sunday.

Clivens Langlois, of 349 Kent Ave., was charged with criminal attempt at murder, first-degree assault and second-degree assault and was held on $250,000 bond.

Officer Michael Cantrell responded to 319 Willow St., on Sunday at 8:40 p.m. on a report of a stabbing.

He arrived to a chaotic scene and found Carlos Baez, 39, suffering from multiple stab wounds to his abdomen and his wife, Stephanie Baez, 38, with a wound to her arm.

Through witnesses, Cantrell learned that a group of people had been socializing and drinking at the Willow Street location when Carlos Baez and Langlois got into an argument that turned physical. Langlois left the scene but returned about an hour later, approached Carlos Baez and stabbed him.

Stephanie Baez was injured when she attempted to intervene. As officers investigated, police learned of a possible address for the suspect and a witness accompanied Officer Manuel Santos to confirm it. Santos and other officers then returned to Kent Street and found Langlois on the front steps,  where police arrested him.
