MERIDEN — A Hartford man faces charges after police say he attempted to stab a relative after a dispute Saturday.

Alex Torres, 22, of 44 South St., was charged Saturday with carrying a dangerous weapon, attempt to commit second-degree assault, breach of peace, second-degree threatening and violation of a protective order.

Police responded to 279 S. Broad St. about 2:50 p.m. for a report of two people fighting. After speaking with witnesses, police determined Torres and a relative were arguing and Torres tried to stab the relative with a knife, according to a police report. Several bystanders broke up the fight, and the relative got into a car and left.

Torres and the relative both have protective orders barring contact with each other, the report said.

Torres was arraigned in Meriden Superior Court on Tuesday. The judge set bond at $35,000 and continued the case to Oct. 6.
