WALLINGFORD — A local woman charged with stabbing her boyfriend was reportedly angry about her birthday and a toothache.

Dominique Farr, 23, of 70 Center St., was charged Thursday with first-degree assault. 

On Thursday around 1 p.m., police went to MidState Medical Center in Meriden for a report of a man that was stabbed earlier in the day. The man told police his girlfriend, Farr, stabbed him in the stomach, according to a police report. He also showed police text messages from Farr saying she had been stabbed.

The man told police he was at Farr’s home and she was in a bad mood about her birthday, which was on Wednesday, and a toothache, the report said. They argued and as he was leaving he made a comment about her toothache. Farr followed him into the hallway, pulled his hair and stabbed him with a knife, the report said. The man walked to a relative’s home to get a ride to the hospital.  He suffered an inch-long wound and was transferred to Hartford Hospital for additional examination. Police went to Farr’s home, and, after not receiving an answer, breached a door and saw two folding knives in plain view.

Farr was located at a relative’s home in Meriden. Police said she did not have any visible injuries and that the only injury she complained about was apparently the result of oral surgery, the report said. Farr declined to speak with police without an attorney.

Police were granted a search warrant and went back to Farr’s apartment and seized the knives.

Farr was arraigned in Meriden Superior Court on Friday. The bail commissioner said she has no criminal history and works part time. The judge entered a protective order barring Farr from any contact with the man and set her bond at $15,000.
